I wish I could agree with the two commentators lavish description about the fragrance of Fragrant rose. In my experience whatever scent this narcissus has, is rather questionable. My wife and I smelled them at different hours, temperatures, as a cut flower indoors, alas nothing nose worthy. If youre buying this for scent forget it. But if youre buying it for its for it beautiful white and sturdy perianth and lovely orange trumpet then by all means go for it.

Pretty and fragrant. Blooms right after Fragrant Breeze, but doesn't do as well under trees as fragrant breeze. Fragrance is a combination of rasperries and old roses.
