Narcissus "Elka"

Sometimes the images of plants are different from the catalogues and googling Narcissus "Elka" I'm struck by how pale some of the images look, almost white in the case of Sarah Raven where it is described as being "ivory". Mine are two coloured, possessing a deeper albeit pale yellow trumpet with lighter outer petals. There is a simple beauty. Classy. So the catalogues are correct in that the flowers are a "classy daff" and worthy of that RHS AGM. I have it together with Harvington Double White, another classy plant.
