Narcissus Telamonius Plenus


We feel this is really the double form of the wild Narcissus pseudonarcissus despite the cultivar name (in fact an old synonym of Narcissus pseudonarcissus flore pleno). These daffodils appear in woodlands all over Britain, sometimes appearing with a green tinge in the petals, as with our local “Derwydd” daffodil. They are nowadays associated with the very old variety Narcissus Van Sion, introduced in the 17th Century but the forms inhabiting our British woods and gardens are smaller and wilder looking than the Van Sion offered by Dutch growers today, with a much smaller flowering bulb. Flowers in March and 8-12” high.
