description:
Justifiably popular dwarf daffodil. Strong golden yellow flowers are produced two or three to on stem. Neat habit and naturalises well, possibly one of the best all-round cultivars.

cultivation:
Best in moderately fertile, well drained soil. Needs reasonable moisture while in growth early in the year but dormant bulbs will survive drought and hot summers. Sun or part shade.
Plant bulbs at one and half times their own size or a little deeper. Allow foliage to die back naturally after flowering.

propagation:
Separate and replant bulb offsets.

usage:
Good for naturalising.

other notes:
Division 6 or 12?
Raised by Alec Gray of Cambourne, Cornwall in 1949, deriving from Narcissus cyclamineus x Narcissus tazette 'Soleil d'Or'.
