The grass-like foliage of this miniature daffodil makes it one of the best to naturalise in short grass: as the leaves die down they don’t jar with the surrounding grass. The sweetly-scented flowers, with neatly rounded petals, are simple and charming. Bred in Holland in the 1950s, it has the simplicity of the sort of flower a child draws. Plant as many as you have space for and divide the clumps every three or four years. Grow a few in pots to keep near the house so that you can enjoy the scent on those days when you don’t feel brave enough to venture out. It grows to about 15cm tall and flowers in March and April.
