Sailboat is a division 7, Jonquilla Daffodil with 2-3 blooms per stem of slightly recurved petals and pale-yellow, slightly frilled, funnel-like coronas. Wonderfully scented blooms with sublime beauty, a forward looking plant, Sailboat looks out onto the horizon from its perch.

Plant near the front of beds or borders and also great in rock gardens. Planted en masse Sailboat is great for naturalising an area and when collected make lovely, fragrant bouquets and compliment any flower arrangements.

Narcissi refer to the plant species that while similar to Daffodils are both smaller in height and the size of the bloom, specifically the cup or corona. These characteristics do not diminish from the beauty of Narcissi, which are generally very colourful, showy and fragrant. Many of the Narcissi are the earliest bloomers of winter and early spring season and typically have a dazzling assortment of lemony yellows, golden oranges and stunning whites.

The divisions of the Narcissi usually fall into the categories of doubles, multi-headed and Jonquilla, all of these being smaller than their similar Daffodil relatives. Where the Narcissi really stand out, in addition to their delicate beauty is their tendency to be quite fragrant.

Narcissi are bulbous herbaceous perennials which require moist, but well-drained soils in full sun to partial shade. Most varieties of Narcissi prefer sheltered locations away from strong winds, while some varieties are stouter and can tolerate more exposed locations. Although plant-specific variations do exist, most varieties of Narcissi prefer pH neutral soils, with some preferring slightly more acidic or alkaline soils in order to produce the best blooms. Due to the possibility of bulb rot, Narcissi require soils that are well-drained.

Plant Narcissi bulbs with the root cluster downwards, usually identified by a rougher area and the tip or point of the bulb upwards. In general, Narcissi are planted to the depth of 1.5 to 2 times the size of the bulb, usually in the range of 15-20cm, ensuring that none of the bulb is exposed. In very cold areas, Narcissi may require winter mulching to protect them from frost.
