Elegant flowers appear in March and April with milky-white petals and a lemon trumpet which gradually fades to creamy-white. These daffs have distinctive flowers with long trumpets and windswept petals. It is a dainty cyclamineus hybrid narcissus and is ideal for naturalising in a sunny well-drained border or for planting in large swathes through grassland. The flowers stand up well to wind and rain - an important consideration when choosing spring bulbs for an exposed site.

  • 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.
