Height: 42cm / 17"
Flowering Time: March-April
Primary Colour: White
A free flowering pot plant and equally good variety for the garden, the early Barrett Browning has white perianth petals which are rounded at the edges and a flat crown of flame red which is neatly ruffled. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Barrett Browning is a Division 3 – Small Cupped Narcissi, this variety varies from the Large Cupped Narcissi as the cup or corona is no more than one-third the length of the perianth segments. Like the Large Cupped Narcissi they too are known for having one flower per stem. A well-drained soil, deeply worked and containing some humus is ideal for narcissus and they will not tolerate a waterlogged soil. Barrett Browning will grow to around 42cm.
