Narcissus poeticus 'Pheasants Eye'


Narcissus poeticus 'Pheasants Eye'

A pot of narcissus lying under the potting bench looked promising so I put it out in the rain. It needed a drink and it is very welcome at this time of year. The flower is extremely fragrant, with a ring of tepals in pure white and a short corona of light yellow with a distinct reddish edge.[2] It grows to 20 to 40 cm (7.9 to 15.7 in) tall.

Daft thing is I have never managed to grow these but I keep trying. I only have the one flower but that is a miracle given that it has been lying under the potting bench and the compost was almost bone dry.
