What should I be doing in the Garden this month?
Daffodils cyclaminieus Daffodils Elizabeth Ann
Elizabeth Ann has slightly reflexed perianth segments which are pure white and a wide bowl shaped cup which is green at the centre and banded rose pink on its frilled rim. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Elizabeth Ann is a Division 6 – cyclamineus Hybrid Narcissi, a variety similar to the triandrus Narcissi with perianth peals which bend back to reveal a globular corona. Its main variation is in flowering time; cyclamineus Hybrids on average flower one month earlier than triandrus. A well-drained soil, deeply worked and containing some humus is ideal for narcissus and they will not tolerate a waterlogged soil. Elizabeth Ann will grow to around 30cm.
