Description

Delightful and charming, Narcissus 'White Petticoat' seems to have come straight out of a Beatrix Potter story. Bringing to mind Mrs Tiggy-winkle with her piles of laundry, this miniature daffodil twirls her trumpets like very clean white skirts. Narrow pointed outer petals stick out around the trumpets like neatly-starched collars. The endearing Narcissus 'White Petticoat' is bound to add a note of dainty charm to early spring.

Narcissus bulbocodium are still fairly unusual among daffodil aficionados, but are getting rave reviews from gardeners who are seeking something a little bit different. Despite their delicate good looks, these bulbs are as tough as other daffodils, and don’t demand being fussed over: just give 'White Petticoat' a prime spot in freely-draining soil in sun or part shade.  With its small stature, reaching no higher than 15cm tall, Narcissus bulbocodium 'White Petticoat' looks lovely grouped in pots around a patio table, or poking up among rockery plants in early spring.
