Princess Zaide has rounded white petals which sit beneath a small flat cup which is a deep moss green at the base, through to a pale chartreuse yellow to a creamy white at its crinkled edges. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Princess Zaide 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. Princess Zaide will grow to around 48cm and is recommended for exhibition.
