Also known as ‘The Tenby Daffodil’, obvallaris has neat clear yellow trumpet with slightly light perianth petals. It is a strong naturaliser and an old time favourite. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. obvallaris is a Division 10 – Species and Dwarf Narcissi, a sub species of the N. pseudo-narcissus much like the lobularis. It too is an early bloomer with fine perianth petals and a long plaited trumpet-like corona. A well-drained soil, deeply worked and containing some humus is ideal for narcissus and they will not tolerate a waterlogged soil. obvallaris will grow to around 25cm and has also been presented the RHS Award of Merit.
