Description

Also known as Narcissus poeticus var. recurvus, this well-known and much-loved classic is an old reliable favourite which will put on a brilliant show each spring without any fuss at all. Narcissus 'Pheasant's Eye', a plucky naturalising variety, is the perfect choice for growing in any garden - give it a spot in a border, container, woodland or meadow planting scheme and it will bring cheery colour and fragrance to the garden come rain or shine.

Scented pure white blooms unfurl in late spring and show off a striking orange-rimmed central cup. Flowering over an exceptionally long period, you’ll be able to enjoy catching glances which this beady pheasant’s eye for several weeks. Narcissus 'Pheasant's Eye' looks great planted in big, natural drifts, but just as good on a small scale too where the detail of the flower can be fully welcomed. If you enjoy picking flowers from the garden to display in your home, these fragrant and long-lasting beauties are a must for spring arrangements!
