    A taller jonquil, which produces a single golden yellow flower on each stout stem. Reliable and hardy, it takes inclement weather in its stride and has really well scented blooms, so try to place it near a pathway or seating area. Plant more than you think you will need as you will also want some for cutting - they will fill your home with their heady perfume.

After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head the flowers, but do not be tempted to cut back or tidy the foliage after flowering as this will interfere with the bulbs ability to store energy for the following year's flowers.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin irritant
