("Fall daffodil")


First described by Carolus Clusius in 1601 it shows a broad distribution throughout Mediterranean Europe and Asia. It has gained notability due to its widespread use as a garden plant and has become naturalized in Northern Europe.

Planting Tips:

Sternbergia will multiply freely when they are happy in a warm, sunny spot with well-drained soil. Add a bit of lime every now and then to keep them vigorous.
