Poeticus Narcissi Actaea

(inc. 20.0% VAT)


Muse of the poets, widely believed to be the variety mentioned by Virgil, Poeticus Narcissi have an inspirational purity of beauty and grace. The historical ‘Actaea’ features a ring of crisp white petals like freshly ironed linen, centring on a striking, crimson-edged golden eye. Single blooms nod elegantly from slender, curving, swanlike necks. This much-admired old favourite has been granted an RHS Award of Garden Merit for its excellence and dependability. Amongst the best for naturalising in drifts amongst lawns, orchards, dappled shade, and meadows. Equally enchanting in generous pots by the door, to capitalise on the heady fragrance of jasmine and hyacinth.
