Species Narcissi Canaliculatus

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



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.

Care Guide

Plant Daffodil and Narcissi bulbs in autumn, ideally in mid September to early October to enable roots to establish before a period of cold in winter. A position in full sun or light shade is best and good drainage is essential. Daffodils and Narcissi are long lasting and naturalise well, providing a welcoming display every spring. Ideal for borders, containers, rock gardens and open grass. Plant the bulbs 10-20cm deep and apart, depending on variety. A good rule of thumb is to plant bulbs 2-3 times their depth. Flowers appear in March and April and should be deadheaded once faded. The foliage should be left to turn yellow and fade naturally on the plant as this helps to feed the bulbs for next year’s blooms.
