Narcissus triandrus 'Thalia'

I have several clumps of Thalia around the garden. They seem to be really taking off. These are a shorter than the large cup varieties which have already bloomed and are now drying up. These are making a great second wave of daffodil blooms in the garden.

Narcissus triandrus 'Thalia'
Narcissus 'Thalia', sometimes referred to as orchid narcissus, is a wonderfully fragrant, pure white daffodil with multiple, pendulous flowers on each stem. This is the oldest known hybrid (1610) derived from Narcissus triandrus, a species originating from southwestern Europe.

Very pretty, interesting variety. Love the "star" effect and whiteness of them. They look bigger than the normal daffodils.

Nope they are smaller and have 2 flowers per stem. If you want some... I can dig some up in the fall. We have 3-4 clumps and they are suppose to spread.
