If asked to name one narcissus that is fundamental to our spring garden, it would have to be a species Jonquilla. Dainty with the strength and endurance of an ironman, with a fragrance second to none, Henriquesii is who we look forward to greeting every spring.
Henrique puts up a flush of foliage in the fall which lasts all winter. Jonquilla cultivars tend to come and go, but the species are persistent, even in our zone 6. The flowers manage to bloom a long time through any kind of early spring meteorological punishment. You will want to put a small vase of Henry picked from the garden in the kitchen window to keep you company.
