Narcissus Pipit is certainly distinctive, and seems to do well even in less than ideal soil conditions. The flowers are pale lemon, quite a sharp and outstanding colour without being bright, and as the flowers mature the centre of the flower fades to near white leaving a two tone effect. They are scented and you should expect several flowers to each stem, lasting well even though they initially flower quite late.

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.
