One of the prettiest daffodils out there, Narcissus 'Thalia' adds pleasing highlights to any springtime garden.
Once a favourite among Victorian gardeners, flowers emerge in a delicate greeny-white shade, maturing to bright creamy white as they open and contrasting beautifully against dark-green foliage.
Also known as 'Angel's Tears', this classic trumpet daffodil has multi-headed, downward-pointing blooms that will dance delightfully on the spring breeze.
With stems of a medium length, 'Thalia' is a versatile variety that will look outstanding at the front of beds, borders and rock gardens, or in pots and containers. Plant in groups or drifts through grass or underplant deciduous trees and shrubs, where they will naturalise easily and reward with bigger and better displays each year.
They also make a fabulous cut flower – not least for their wonderfully strong fragrance – so be sure to plant enough to fill your vases several times over, and maybe even a couple for your loved ones!
Plant in groups of 6 to 10 for maximum impact, in full sun or semi-shade, either on their own or with other spring-flowering bulbs of different colours for an eye-catching display.
Supplied as a pack of 20 bulbs for planting in the autumn.
*Harmful if eaten/skin irritant.
For a natural look, throw a handful onto a grassy area and plant them where they fall.
Which way up? Usually pointy end up, but if you are not sure, plant the bulb on its side and it will right itself.
Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.
Propagate by removing offsets in the early summer to populate new areas.
