Variety: Obvallaris
Flowering heights:  10 ins
Month:  February into March
Clare Bulb Co comment: Obvallaris is one of the original varieties of daffodils, also known as The Tenby Daffodil, the national flower of Wales. It is sometimes referred to as pseudo-narcissus. Very easy to naturalise in a woodland setting, being among other things, deer-proof.
If the price seems a bit high, try February Gold. It has very similar characteristics to both Obvallaris (and the unavailable Lobularis).
Obvallaris was probably the variety Wordsworth spotted when wandering beside the lake, composing his famous poem. Short and sturdy, a fine addition to the early garden, (the daffodil, not William).
