This is my all time favorite Narcissus. The scent is fabulous and the flowers are lovely either in the garden or in a vase. 2 or 3 blossoms in a room will scent the whole room. It is well behaved in the garden, tending to stay where it is placed and the leaf is relatively inconspicuous as it matures and dies. I just wish mine would spread more! I have never had any allergic reaction to this plant although I do have allergic reactions to many plants.
