This unique all-time favourite daffodil is a must have for all celebrations! Narcissus Ziva features unique looking flowers in a pure white colour. Each flower has three outer petals and three inner petals with a lovely, white cup-shaped trumpet in the centre. This variety has a sweet scent and reaches 40-50 cm in length.

Ziva belongs to the Tazetta group, which features strong fragrance, perfect medium size flowers and multiple bloomers from one stem. Originally, this variety comes from the warmer countries, such as Israel, which makes the bulbs quite vulnerable to frost.

This variety can also be used as a house plant and spread its natural sweet fragrance in your house instead. For those, who prefer growing Ziva in the flowerbed or garden borders, it is advised to plant the bulbs and afterwards to cover the area with pebbles to create some pressure, because the bulbs tend to stick out from the ground. In the Netherlands the Tazetta group feels at home and approves its neutral climate.

Other information

  • First loosen the soil well where the daffodil bulbs will be planted. Then the soil is easier to work with.
  • Dig a hole and make sure it is 2 to 3 times as deep as the height of the bulbs.
  • For the distance between the bulbs, make sure it is 2 times the diameter of the bulbs.
  • Plant the flower bulbs in the hole with the pointed side facing up or with the root base facing down.
  • Cover the daffodil bulbs with soil and water them well.

Pre-orders can be placed until the first week of August, which will be shipped in the first half of September and delivered in October.
