|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,
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).
