Narcissus 'Chiva'

I ordered Narcissus 'Chiva' last autumn from Mr Middleton and I have to say that I am really pleased with how it has grown. It has the most beautiful scent and when I cut a few the other day and brought them into the house the scent from them was just amazing. It has a multi headed flower with a good strong yellow colour and it appears to stand up well to rain and wind. A good all round daffodil. 

Have a good St Patrick's Day and hopefully the weather will be okay over the next few days.

Great to get good recommendations for a different variety. The yellow is lovely and vibrant too. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you and Paddy too. Weather looking atrocious for tomorrow.

Thats a sumptious colour.At present I find that a lot of daffs are beginning to fade. they were out early and I think the snowdrops and hellebores grab the attention! There is a beautiful white one whose name I forget but it is there in plenty this year.Ah its Thalia a lovely delicate one. Also 'Patricks day' is out in perfect timing up here.

A Happy St. Patrick's Day to you and Paddy ( It is his feast day). Never did I get any scent from a daffodil, I'm sure you will enjoy the scent Mary. And then my heart with pleasure fills and dances with the daffodils.

That is so pretty and standing up well too.  Looks like a jonquil type?  I hope you and Paddy enjoyed the day despite the weather, though the morning wasn't too bad here.

Happy days, Mary.

Happy days, but not so sure about happy nights, Jacinta. He is roaring like Doran's bull now.
