Narcissus bulbocodium var.citrinus is a dwarf Narcissus species. A bulbous perennial, it produces lovely funnel shaped pale lemon flowers in early spring will grow up to 15 cm in height, surrounded by its slender, bright green foliage. When established, bulbs will become clump forming the longer they are in the ground. They grow best in moist, but well drained soil in the growing season, which can then be allowed to dry out in the summer months. If they are happy, they will self-seed and are perfect for naturalising in thin grassland or at the edge of borders, and grow well in both dappled shade or full sun.
