- Long Description
A good naturaliser that blooms in March and lasts many weeks, Peeping Tom has slightly reflexed perianth petals and a long narrow trumpet both of a rich golden yellow. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Peeping Tom 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. Peeping Tom will grow to around 40cm and has also been presented the RHS Award of Merit.
