Description

“Ooh! What on earth are those flowers? Could they really be Daffodils?” That’s the reaction that Narcissus 'Rip Van Winkle' gets when it’s remarkably fluffy blooms begin to open. Its secret lies in the finely divided petals that create a golden nova when they begin to open. Surprising? Yes! Unusual? Absolutely! Something new? Actually, no. It’s been taking gardeners’ breath away for more than 130 years, So 'Rip van Winkle' daffodils are true heritage blooms. Take advantage of their compact height and use them to highlight the edges of flower beds or use them as absolutely charming pot plants on patios or sunny windowsills. On the 3rd image, you can see Rip van Winkle combined with Anemone 'White Splendour' - aren't they wonderful together?
