Narcissus Pipit is a multiheaded form called a ‘reverse’ bicolor. These flowers open with all parts a sharp lemon yellow and then fade outwards to a paler, creamier colour from the centre of the flower (most bicolors fade from the tips of the petals inwards). Tough enough to plant in rough grass.

Planting Instructions

Narcissus Pipit bulbs should be planted quite deeply with 4-5" (10-12cm) of good soil over the bulbs, where they will remain cool and moist and safe from activity above them in the summer. They should clump up from being planted about 4" (10cm) apart, even further for more ''relaxed'' planting. I would suggest you plant them 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.
