Wild Daffodil is also known as Daffydowndillies or Lenten Lily. Once widespread, it is now only found in isolated patches round the country. Early flowers are seen in woodlands and edges, waysides, verges, old churchyards and undisturbed land. The paler outer petals shield the darker trumpets and the flower stems are quite short and sturdy.
Flowering from seed takes between 3 and 5 years but is well worth the wait.
The bulb and leaves are poisonous.
Store damp seed mixed with sand in a warm place for 2-3wks, then transfer to a fridge for about 4wks to aid germination. Sow as normal, covering the seed with only about 0.5cm of compost
