Description

The recently introduced Narcissus 'Carice' (2016) is a delightful, petite daffodil, with creamy white petals that open fully, to surround a flower tube of bright salmon pink. It is a beautiful yet subtle combination that looks great from a distance, but even better close up! By early spring it will grow up to 20-25cm in height, surrounded by its slender, pale green foliage!

When established, bulbs will become clump-forming the longer they are in the ground. They grow best in moist, but well drained soil which is slightly acidic. ‘Carice’ is the perfect choice for naturalising in grassland, but it looks just as ‘at home’ growing in drifts in the border, or in patio containers. It prefers to grow in dappled shade, but will do almost as well in full sun. Narcissus 'Carice' is in the Narcissus Group 6 (Cyclamineus).
