Narcissus cyclamineus (also called cyclamen-flowered daffodil)
This may be the specie or a cultivar; will update when info available.
Hardy, deciduous, bulbous perennial, this is one of the shorter daffodils of the Narcissus family. Grown for bright yellow flowers which appear in early to mid-spring, they give good colour when little else is flowering. Suitable for borders, naturalising in grass, under-planting of shrubs, containers and for cutting. Attractive to insects.
This daffodil has been used to good effect at RHS garden Rosemoor (at Great Torrington, in North Devon), where it has been propagated for several years and now grows in large naturalised groups in several different settings.
Flowers in early to mid-spring.
Habit - upright. H: up to 20cm
Leaves - narrow, strap-like, bright green.
Flowers - bright yellow with reflexed (turned up and back) perianth segments and slender trumpets with an out-turned serrated frill at the end.
Sun to partial shade.
Well-drained but moisture-retentive during the growing season, moderately fertile, acid to neutral.
Deadhead after flowering and allow flowers to die down naturally. Take care when handling foliage and bulbs and this plant is irritant.
If other Narcissi are being grown, they may hybridise so any seed-raised plants will not come true. Propagate by separating off the off-sets and replanting or by scaling.
