Narcissus 'Silver Chimes'.

Narcissus 'Silver Chimes'
Some plants produce blooms which look as if they have been made out of porcelain...... delicate, refined and fragile looking. This Narcissus is one such bulb which is just coming into bloom. It looks like the kind of perfumed flower which would be terrific growing in a large container to bloom in time for a spring garden wedding or brought indoors for a party.
This is the first time I have grown this variety. The early flowering Narcissus or jonquils finished flowering a month ago and I was not even sure whether this one would produce any blooms as the leaves come up months ago and nothing seemed to be happening. I immediately thought that maybe it was not cold enough to trigger blooming. I am delighted by the results.
