The exotic name, 'Tahiti' is justified for this striking daffodil. It has large, double, yellow flowers with bright red-orange centres that are borne in mid-spring. Ideal for planting in borders, it is also great for cut flower displays indoors. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit. Plant bulbs in autumn at twice their own depth. After flowering, allow the foliage to die down naturally as damage to the leaves can cause the bulbs to fail to flower the following spring.
