One of the best in its class, Romance has milky white over-lapping perianth segments and a well-proportioned rose pink cup. Pink cupped varieties are best planted in a sunny position in the garden as this allows them to develop their tints which occurs several days after opening. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Romance 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. Romance will grow to around 36cm and is recommended for exhibition. It has also been presented the RHS Award of Merit.
