Narcissus Thalia is one of the few daffodils that open out pure white, this is refined and elegant, a greeny-white flower, multi-headed and scented. A well-known classy favourite since 1916, it is also a very good cut flower. Historical daffodils have particular interest for us. They have a quaintness and informality that is largely lost in modern daffodil breeding, yet they have stood the test of time having been at their peak of popularity in Victorian times. Many more remain to be rediscovered and loved again.

Planting Instructions

Narcissus Thalia bulbs should be planted in cool rich soil in sun or part shade quite deeply with 5-6" (12-15cm) of soil over the bulb, where it will remain more cool, more moist and safer from activity above them in the summer. 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. I would suggest you plant them in distinct groups and not randomly as the effect is generally better. They should clump up from being planted about 4" (10cm) apart, further apart for more ''relaxed'' planting.
