Narcissus cyclamineus 'February Gold'

Another cyclamineus cultivar today with a very well known bulb that has certainly stood the test of time. "February Gold" does not always live up to its name although this year it has been in flower since January in many gardens. Some years it is "March Gold".  Here is a spectacular display from RHS Garden Wisley taken on February 5th and certainly "Gold". The close-up was taken on Friday in our garden. Sadly we do not have the space for a massed display. We do however have it along the beech hedge in our front garden and very bright it is too. A product of Dutch hybridization, the bulb has been around since 1926.
