Daffodil (Species) Paper White Daffodil in the GardenTags plant encyclopedia

Narcissus papyraceus syn. Narcissus 'Paper White'

 

Daffodil (Species) Paper White Daffodil

A harbinger of spring with many different types of these bright flowers, they come in dwarf varieties as well as the standard type and are easy to grow. They come in many shades of yellow and white, they all have outside petals and a cup in the middle often having the cup a different colour or shade to the petals. 'Paperwhite’ can be grown outside but require shelter as are not the most hardy daffodil. They produce masses of dainty pure white paper-thin flowers borne in bunches.
