Gardeners' Notes:

Positive northgrass On May 4, 2007, northgrass from West Chazy, NY (Zone 4b) wrote:

Very lovely narcissus with finer foliage that looks neater than many of the larger daffodils do after their blooms have passed. Along with Thalia, it ranks high on my list.

I happen to love this unlikely creature because of its color procrastination; the immature blooms are yellowish until they turn white/coral, which make for a nice one-plant color combination. This, I obseved, does happen more often in partial shade. A nice little fella.

It takes a while for the pink coloration to appear. I thought I'd been sold the wrong variety, but a few days later the cup turned pink as predicted.

Positive DreamOfSpring On Mar 30, 2005, DreamOfSpring from Charleston, SC (Zone 9a) wrote:

Relatively short in stature (12-14"); some references refer to this as a miniature. Literature indicates pink tones develop better in partial shade.

Edited to indicate that while blooms were more of a salmon-yellow upon first opening, they did "ripen" to a lovely, true, light pink over the next few days.
