Coral Light has large well overlapped pure white perianth segments and a pale coral pink cup which is banded darker at the edge. Pink cupped varieties such as this are best planted in a sunny position as this helps the flowers develop their colour which usually occurs several days after opening. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Coral Light 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. Coral Light will grow to around 42cm and is recommended for exhibition.
