Spring flowering bulb. Clusters of fragrant flowers with ivory white petals and bright yellow cups. Vigorous grower making sturdy plants with substantial bulbs.

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.

Division 8 - Tazetta

Old variety originating from the Netherlands in the 18th century.

Sometimes regarded as synonymous with Narcissus 'Grand Primo', but this appears to be a slightly different form with yellowish petals.
