Lobualris is an exceptional daffodil with the interesting classification of Pseudonarcissus. It is in the last of the daffodil divisions (13) but one one the most natural and oldest groups of daffodils. Although they naturalise well if left undisturbed they do not cultivate well. Many of the wild bulbs were destroyed by agricultural development in the 19th century. 

Lobularis is the most commonly available, followed by Obvalaris, the Tenby Daffodil.

There are numerous other Pseudonarcissus varieties but these small flowers are hard to come by.

It is known as the Lent lily, appearing in spring during the course of lent. It is also known as the Wild English Daffodil. It is not exclusively native to England, appearing all over northern Europe, with large populations in and around Wales. 

So it will come as no surprise that these little narcissus bulbs are limited in stock. 

If you want to purchase a historic narcissus with an interesting story this is worth getting your hands on these bulbs whilst you can. These will be the pride of any collector, but be aware pseudo narcissus can hybridise with other pseudos.

Lobularis is a beautiful trumpet daffodil bulb. The light yellow corona is long and gently frilled. The 6 petals are lemon yellow and have a gentle twist, projecting perpendicular to the trumpet. 

Standing at only 20cm tall, it still maintains it’s position as a giant of the daffodil world with it’s exceptional beauty. 

They are a good investment too. Planted in woodland they will naturalise by seed. It might take 6 years for a seed to develop into a flower but once they get started you will start to see them multiply into a wonderful carpet of yellow. 

‘Bring back the Wild English Daffodil’ is what we say. 

The bulbs are very small and can quickly dry out if left out of the ground for too long. Make sure you plant them as soon as you can. They like a rich well draining soil and perform well in semi shaded conditions.
