Narcissus ‘Puppet’

Another of the daffodils blooming in the garden. This one is ‘Puppet’ which, for those who want to know, is a Triandrus hybrid (Div 5 Y-O) and has one or two flowers per slender stem and narrow, green leaves. The flowers are bright and very fragrant. I like them a lot apart from one aspect which is that the cup seems to be pinched at the mouth which, to me, makes it look a bit mean. It is only a small thing but I would prefer it if the cup was flared at the mouth or straight.

But I am being too picky. The flowers are delicate in form, scented and a lovely colour and, at about 30cm tall, ideal for pots. It was raised by Grant Mitsch and registered in 1970.
