Narcissus obvallaris opens its flowers in early spring. It’s a medium height daffodil with bright yellow flowers. The trumpet of Narcissus obvallaris flairs open and its petals lean slightly forward. Once the plant has gone over, leave the old foliage on for at least six weeks after flowering, so that the plant has chance to build up energy for the following year’s display.
