This beautiful jonquil is very hardy and easy to grow but it has perky scented flowers in clusters of 2 or 3 per stem that look really very pretty when planted in bold drifts. As long as the soil is reasonably freely draining they can be left for several years to naturalise and as they can tolerate a little shade, they are ideal for underplanting deciduous trees and shrubs. Their apple white and pale yellow flowers have a fruity fragrance and last well as cut flowers.

Garden Care: Plant 10-15cm (4-6in) deep from late summer to early autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head and allow the leaves to die back naturally.

Other Features: Contact with the sap may cause skin irritatio.
