  • Rate of growth: average

    Each stem can carry up to three sweetly scented flowers, so when planted en-masse, these jonquils not only look good, but smell great too. They have creamy white, windswept petals and a cup, which fades from butter to cream as it matures. Plant plenty so you have some for cutting too.

  • 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
