Small species daffodil with a long tubular trumpet and back-swept petals.
Best in moderately fertile, well drained, neutral to acid 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.
By seed or bulb offsets.
