  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained soil (for container-grown bulbs use two parts John Innes No2 compost to one part sharp grit)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March and April
  • Flower colour: yellow
  • Other features: narrow, strap-like leaves; contact with the sap may cause skin irritation

    The dramatically swept back golden yellow petals surround a bright orange trumpet, giving this sturdy daffodil a windswept look. They appear in early spring and are ideal for naturalising in bold drifts where they will carpet the ground with their golden flowers. Also suitable for pots if space is limited, so their bright and cheerful colour can be enjoyed close at hand.

  • Garden care: Plant 10-15cm (4-6in) deep from late summer to early autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head and allow the leaves to die back naturally.

    • Harmful if eaten/skin irritant
