Narcissus tazetta 'Minnow'

A charming and dainty plant, the Minnow daffodil, Narcissus tazetta, is one of the smallest of our dwarf daffodil bulbs collection, offering tiny yellow to pale-yellow blooms.

A true Easter plant, the Minnow Narcissi's flowers are formed of a buttercup-yellow trumpet shaped centre (corona) surrounded by lighter yellow outer petals (perianth). It gradually fades to a creamy yellow colour with maturity. At 2.5cm across, the tiny flowers produce a subtle fragrance.

With multiple heads bearing up to five small clusters of flowers, the Minnow puts on a surprisingly good early show when blooming between March and April. Growing up to 20cm and with a spread of the same measure, its small compact size makes it ideal for planting in pots, rockeries, patio containers or at the front of a border. It's also particularly hardy for its size with a moderate rate of growth. See the full variety of daffodil and narcissus bulbs we have available for sale.

How to grow Dwarf Narcissi

  • Group 8: Tazetta Daffodil
  • When: plant in autumn from September through to November
  • Position: full sun to partial shade
  • Soil: able to tolerate most soils but best when planted in moderately fertile and well-drained soil. Keep ground constantly wet whilst growing. Consider a fertiliser starter.
  • Depth: one and a half to two times the bulbs depth, 12-20cm, and at 15cm apart
  • Gardener's tip: allow the leaves the die off naturally before dead-heading. Propagate by removing offsets as the leaves begin to fade. A half strength high-potash fertilizer starter is recommended, as is bringing the plants inside once the bulbs begin to open to encourage early flowering. Once the foliage has died off they can be left undisturbed for years. Resist cutting back the foliage after flowering as this can affect the plant’s ability to produce flowers the following year.

Reliable in the appropriate conditions and a good performing plant, the Minnow has been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Working well as a cut flower, it can last for up to a week in a pretty Easter table vase (take care as it can cause discomfort when eaten). One can speculate that it takes its name from the diminutive fish of the same name – so why not grow a shoal of daffs in your garden?!
