Narcissus 'Mrs Langtry' is an historical daffodil with elegant, twisted white petals with pale, lemon yellow cups.
Narcissus 'Mrs Langtry' has elegant, twisted white petals with pale, lemon yellow cups that can age to cream. It is an historical daffodil hybridized pre-1869 by W. Backhouse and shares with other historical daffodils an elegance and informal sensibility leading to a resurgence of interest in old cultivars. Like other daffodils in the large cupped group, it is vigorous. Daffodils are disease and pest resistant, and these have stood the test of time.
