Narcissus ‘Canaliculatus’ is a terrific dwarf species, which valiantly punches above its weight. The name may be a tongue-twister, but the flowers are neat and sweet, with a milk-white perianth and a miniature canary yellow cup above handsome, blue-green foliage. With up to 4 heads carried in umbels, each stem seems laden with bowing blooms. The compact size of this bantam variety lends itself to edging borders and rockeries and dotting amongst lawns. Capitalise on the soft scent by filling containers by the door. Short, sturdy stems are suitable for more exposed positions, where ‘Canaliculatus’ will hunker down contentedly and bloom unperturbed.
Like celebratory chimes pealing from the church after a sunlit morning service, Narcissus ‘Golden Bells’ triumphantly announces the commencement of spring. Adorned with large, flared, yellow trumpets forming a distinctive bell shape, the broad blooms of this botanical narcissus face upwards, attracting pollinators to nestle in their hollows. Astonishingly free-flowering, one bulb will produce up to 15 heads, dancing above fine, grass-like foliage. This low-growing variety is shown to best advantage in rockeries, alpine beds, the edges of borders and containers. ‘Golden Bells’ is remarkably vigorous and will form impressive carpets of colour if left to naturalise.
The adorable Narcissus ‘Little Gem’ is a lilliputian treasure. This miniature trumpet daffodil justifies the adage ‘good things come in small packages.’ Each superb bloom is perfectly proportioned, neat and dainty, with petals the colour of a newly hatched chick. A charming dwarf species to tuck into the tiniest spaces, well suited to edging borders and paths and lining pots. This little stalwart has earned itself the accolade of an RHS Award of Garden Merit, testimony to its robust nature. ‘Little Gem’ is suitable for exposed locations, where its small, sturdy stature will leave it unaffected by the worst of the weather.

Old Pheasants Eye
The latest of all daffodils to flower, ‘Pheasant’s Eye’ is a fitting finale to your narcissus display. This ‘Recurvus’ variety presents a broad, pure white perianth, swept back to set off a striking, chartreuse eye edged with cadmium orange. Widely considered to be the elite daffodil for its unparalleled elegance, scent and reliability, this historical narcissus holds the sought-after RHS Award of Garden Merit. A favourite variety for naturalising in woodlands, meadows, and grass swathes, where the graceful heads will bob and sway on the breeze. Jam-pack containers by the door to fully take advantage of the exquisite, aromatic, spicy fragrance.
Also known as the ‘Lentern Lily’, ‘Pseudonarcissus Lobularis’ is the original wild British daffodil. Petals of pastel, pale yellow are crowned by a deeper mustard coloured trumpet. Gracing the garden with an air of Informality and romanticism, the modest stature of these daffodils blends well amongst grass without dominating the scene. Incredibly easy to grow, ‘Pseudonarcissus’ are some of the best daffodils for naturalising, being perfectly adapted for the British climate. Ideal for meadow planting, grassy banks, and dappled shade under trees, the ‘Lentern Lily’ will soon form glorious swathes of joyous colour. The longer they are left undisturbed, the better they become!
Join the mad-hatter’s tea party of ‘Spoirot’: like falling down the rabbit hole of Alice in Wonderland, these are daffodils, but not quite as you know them. Deep, tea-cup shaped bowls of ivory porcelain with a delicately waved rim are framed by short, star-shaped, pointed petals. The intriguing, animated little blooms frolic on wiry stems. ‘Spoirot’ is remarkably hardy and vigorous and has thus been granted the highest seal of approval from the RHS – an Award of Garden Merit. This Narcissus bulbocodium is ideally suited to adorning rockeries, alpine beds, containers, and the fronts of borders, where its fascinating form can be fully appreciated.
Like the voluminous, swishing crinoline skirts worn by Victorian ladies, Narcissus ‘White Petticoat’ sports a capacious, flared crown of crisp white cotton. Each shapely trumpet is nipped at the waist and girded by diminutive, pointed anthers. These distinctive, unusual blooms are the height of style and flaunt their beguiling form by pirouetting lightly on wiry stems above fine foliage. This Narcissus bulbocodium is best admired up close in rockeries, alpine beds, and the fronts of borders and containers. Surprisingly robust and vigorous despite its delicate appearance, ‘White Petticoat’ will return with an increasingly impressive display year after year.
