A miniature trumpet daffodil with petals that open up and curl backwards, making the flower look a little like it has been grown in a wind tunnel. The other feature of this small daff is the bi-coloured flowers - white outer petals with a yellow central cup. Good for adding early spring colour to a mixed border or pot them up and move them to a prominent position on the patio when they start to flower.

  • Garden care: Wearing gloves plant bulbs 10-15cm deep and 10cm apart in autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser dead-head the flowers but do not be tempted to cut back or tidy the foliage after flowering as this will interfere with the bulbs ability to store energy for the following year's flowers.
