- Long Description
One of the best Jonquils, the beautiful Quail produces up to 4 deliciously scented golden yellow flowers. It is an extremely strong and free flowering variety. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Quail is a Division 7 – Jonquil Narcissi, a variety which will bear multiple scented flowers per stem, its rush-like foliage is usually as long as its stem. For indoor cultivation these Jonquils should be grown in a cold greenhouse or frame and not in the house. A well-drained soil, deeply worked and containing some humus is ideal for narcissus and they will not tolerate a waterlogged soil. Quail will grow to around 30cm and has also been presented the RHS Award of Merit.
