    A multi-headed trumpet daffodil that emerges from its bud a greeny-white and opens to reveal a delightful pure white flower that looks really good planted in big swathes. This is quite an old variety that was a firm favourite of the Victorians. It went out of favour for several years as the newer varieties had bigger flowers or bolder colours. Happily though this gem is now enjoying a renaissance due to its simple under-stated elegance.

  • 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.
