Narcissus moschatus is the palest creamy white with a head that always seems downcast – some describe it as swanlike? They seem to prefer damper soil in more shade than most, where they show off their pale colours perfectly.

RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Narcissus moschatus has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant. 

Planting Instructions

Narcissus moschatus seem to prefer damper soil in more shade than most and should be planted quite deeply with 3-4" (8-10cm) of soil over the bulb and in small clumps 1-2" (3-5cm) apart in a position that benefits from spring sunshine, but where it will remain cool, moist and safer from activity above them in the summer. They should be planted in distinct groups and not randomly as the effect is generally better. Do not be tempted to cut back or tidy the foliage after flowering as this period of replenishment of the bulb''s starchy food reserves is critical to future flowering. A liquid feed while starchy leaves are still green will benefit clumps in poorer soil.
