Mount Hood has an ivory trumpet with a beautifully rolled back brim which passes to pure white with age to match its thick perianth petals. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Mount Hood is a Division 1 – Trumpet Daffodil, these are characterised by a single flower to a stem with a trumpet which is as long, or longer, than its perianth’s segments. The difference between a daffodil and narcissus is down to the size of the cup, daffodils have a large trumpet while narcissus have a smaller cup. A well-drained soil, deeply worked and containing some humus us ideal for narcissus and they will not tolerate a waterlogged soil. Mount Hood will grow to around 42cm and has also been presented the RHS Award of Merit.
