Description

Narcissus 'Tête à Tête' can’t wait to have an intimate conversation with you! It’s so eager to say "Hi" that it’s one of the earliest of the spring flowering bulbs, and you’ll be welcoming its appearance just as eagerly as it seeks your attention. After all,  'Tête à Tête' narcissi are a sign of the long-awaited spring. The sunny yellow blooms are a good size, but they’re carried on relatively short flower stems making it a charming choice for potted colour that professional pot plant growers have been quick to take advantage of. Use 'Tête à Tête' daffodils in rockeries, beds, borders, pots or window boxes and let it tell you when spring has arrived!

In French, tête-à-tête means ‘to have a conversation between two people’, which relates to the cultivar often hosting pairs of flowers.
