Narcissus jonquilla var. henriquesii

Daffodils are a sure indication that spring is on its way, and this one can be found in the Mountains House where its delicate blooms bring early spring cheer.
Narcissus jonquilla var. henriquesii, or jonquil, is a species (or wild) daffodil of central Portuguese origin. It bears flowers typical of the more familiar daffodils of our gardens, though is delicate in appearance. 1 -2 flowers up to 4cm in diameter are usually carried on each rounded stem. The segments (or what appear to be petals) have inwards-curving margins, and the central corona (or trumpet) is cup-shaped. Narcissus jonquilla var. henriquesii prefers alkaline conditions, and while it may grown outside, it is far more reliable grown in a pot, where it can be given protection from excessive winter rainfall. It is a charming species.
