A very free flowering variety, Mint Julep has an attractive pale yellow perianth which is suffused with a soft green and a small canary yellow cup which has a distinct moss green centre. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Mint Julep 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. Mint Julep will grow to around 42cm and has also been presented the RHS Award of Merit.
