Live in the Mid Atlantic or on the West Coast? You're in luck! Avalanche excels in those areas (and doesn't appreciate the cold of zone 5 and north.) Each stem on this robust variety produces 15-18 super fragrant white flowers accented with soft yellow cups. An heirloom narcissus that's been grown for more than 100 years, Avalanche is also known as Seventeen Sisters because of the multiple flowers per stem. This variety was reportedly a favorite of Thomas Jefferson's and was grown at his Montecello estate.
This super vigorous tazetta can also be forced indoors for winter flowers and fragrance. (see Paperwhites; Paperwhite Sisters for more information)
