Looking for all the world like a swarm of yellow dragonflies hovering a few inches off the ground, Hawera blends the scent of jonquils with the swept back petals of triandrus narcissus. Each of these mini daffodil bulbs produces 5-9 slender 6-8" stems, topped with up to 5 blooms. The flowers are lemon yellow and fragrant, held at an angle and accented with reflexed petals and short cups. Pair Hawara with pansies and other spring bulbs in containers and edgings. Snap up some bulbs this fall while we have them by the dozen for just the cost of a latte.
This narcissus was bred in New Zealand and earn it's unusual name from a small town on the north island. Since it's introduction in the 1930's it's been a popular mini daff for rock gardens, containers and sites in front of shrubs. Hawera is a winner of the American Daffodil Society's Wister Award, which is given to one cultivar annually in recognition of outstanding garden performance (versus show table criteria) for daffodils.
