Popular name: Double daffodil

 

Flower colour: yellow, white, red

Flowering period: April-May

Average plant height: 30-40 cm

Since periods with a lot of wind or wet weather can cause their flower stems to break, plant these narcissi in sheltered locations.

Double narcissi usually have one flower to a stem, but occasionally may have more. Cultivars with one flower to a stem are the same size as the flowers in the previous groups. Their double cups have a somewhat crumpled effect.
