A long lasting variety, Bantam has clear yellow perianth segments which are nicely rounded and slightly reflexed. Its bright orange red cup merges nicely into yellow at the base. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Bantam is a Division 2 – Large Cupped Narcissi, these have comparable characteristics to the Trumpet Daffodils with a single flower to a stem with a cup which is a similar size to its perianth’s segments. The difference between the daffodils and narcissus is down to the size of the cup, daffodils have a large trumpet while narcissus have a smaller cup. A well-drained soil, deeply worked and containing some humus is ideal for narcissus and they will not tolerate a waterlogged soil. Bantam will grow to around 30cm and has also been presented the RHS Award of Merit.
