Plant of the Week

Narcissus cyclamineus:

It’s that time of year and, planted over a century ago by William Robinson himself, the daffodils are flowering at Gravetye. It’s a beautiful sight, particularly in the wild garden where there is a show of yellow behind the hotel.

If you look more closely at the carpet of flowers, you might just find an unusual daffodil with its petals turned to the sky. The narcissus cyclamineus is quite rare and adds exciting variety amongst our native daffodil Narcissus pseudonarcissus.
