Also known as ‘Poeticus Recurvus’, Old Pheasant’s Eye has reflexed snow white perianth segments and a yellow eye rimmed orange. It has a delightful fragrance and it is recommended that you plant the bulbs deeply in rich soil to get the best results in May. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Old Pheasant’s Eye is a Division 9 – Poeticus Narcissi, a variety which will bear a single flower per stem, most are rounded and have a small saucer shaped yellow corona which is edged red. A well-drained soil, deeply worked and containing some humus is ideal for narcissus and they will not tolerate a waterlogged soil. Old Pheasant’s Eye will grow to around 35cm and has also been presented the RHS Award of Merit.
