One of the best naturalisers, Semper Avanti has a large flower made up of creamy white perianth segments with a fluted cup of bright orange. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Semper Avanti 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. Semper Avanti will grow to around 40cm.
