Plant of The Week

Narcissus romieuxii ‘Julia Jane’

This week’s Plant or should I say Plants of the Week photographs have been sent in by two very satisfied customers.

My good friend Ali Corcoran of Leaf and Petal, Tullow, Co. Carlow  https://www.facebook.com/leafandpetal/ is very happy with her little Narcissus romieuxii ‘Julia Jane’.

This is a dwarf narcissus with light greenish-yellow, upward-facing, hooped petticoat shaped cups that appear much larger against the small, narrow, pointed petals.   They usually flower in February/March and are 20cm in height.

Both are members of the Amaryllidaceae family.  The species Narcissus romieuxii originated from Morocco, where it grows in oak and cedar forest at heights of 1700 to 2000m.

 

 

 

 

Narcissus bulbocodium ‘Golden Bells’   

Hoop-petticoat Daffodil

Another happy customer is Sinead Forkin, Sligo who’s Narcissus bulbocodium ‘Golden Bells’ are being widely admired by neighbours and friends.

This dwarf narcissus had bright yellow, upward-facing flowers.  The trumpets are cone shaped, flared and large in comparison to the small, narrow, pointed petals.   Flowering in February/March to a height of 20cm.

The species Narcissus bulbocodium has a wider range being native to Algeria, Morocco, Spain, Portugal and SW France growing on rocky ground, scrub and moorland.

Ideal for window boxes, alpine gardens, scree beds and rockeries.  They are also suitable for naturalising in short grass.

Both varieties are sold out for this season but if you are interested in something a little different in the daffodil range you can pre-order by completing the contact from below.

Happy Spring Everyone!

Customer Review

"Had a lovely visit to Leonie's fuchsia nursery last weekend. It's really an Aladdin’s cave for fuchsia lovers - over 150 varieties - bush, trailing, hardy, half hardy as well as other garden plants. She is very passionate and knowledgeable and we learnt so much even in a short visit. I'd really recommend you take a trip to enrich your garden. Be inspired while supporting a native enthusiast instead of big industrial growers and imports. "

I really enjoyed my visit to the Irish Fuchsia nursery and was intrigued by the companion planting around the tomatoes. Leonie is very willing to share her considerable expertise and experience and I learnt a lot. Now to plant out the lovely cornflowers and succulents I bought from her at a very reasonable price!".
