A delightful multiheaded daffodil which produces very fragrant flowers. Unlike most other daffs the flower colour will change as they age so although the outer petals (perianth) are a pure creamy-white, the long central trumpet opens yellow and will gradually fade to match. It is a vigorous variety and each single bulb should soon multiply so its a good one for naturalising.

  • Garden care: Plant 10-15cm (4-6in) deep from late summer to early autumn. After flowering, feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head and allow the leaves to die back naturally.
