Description

Sometimes you just can’t improve on perfection – and this much is certainly true for the dainty and sweetly scented Narcissus 'Avalanche', winner of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit. It’s a highly prolific narcissus - each stem bearing 10-20 delicate flowers, with snowy white petals and a petite butter-yellow acorn cup. This much-admired Heirloom variety has held a place in the hearts of gardeners since 1906 – and looking at those charming blooms, you can certainly see why!

Long stems and a heady perfume and make Narcissus 'Avalanche' a firm favourite of Florists everywhere, too. Recommended for indoor growing, why not try forcing a bowl of this beautiful variety for early flowering, creating delightful display to brighten up your home through the dark days of January? Then you can sit back and let that sweet scent usher in the promise of spring!

When grown outdoors, Narcissus 'Avalanche' blooms around April or May.
