Martha Washington

N. x intermedius
(Michael Salmon form)


Matador -- 3-5 two inch florets on a very strong, tall stem, very brightly colored flowers of light yellow with orange-red cup, fragrance is very nice and different from most others. This is a cross of the Pheasant Eye (Poeticus) type with the cluster (Tazetta) narcissus, flowering here (coastal central California) in late February with secondary stems in March when established. This variety does best naturalized or in a fairly dry situation. Seed and pollen fertile.
