Best left undisturbed so it can naturalise, Sinopel is quite unusual with ivory white petals which are waved at the edge and a shallow cup which opens emerald green and develops a rim of deep yellow. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Sinopel 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. Sinopel will grow to around 38cm.
