Narcissus tazetta 'Grand Primo' is a superstar from the Gulf Coast to the northern parts of the South, to California, and other warm climates. Vigorous, reliable, perennial all come to mind. Landscapers enjoy the bulb for its massive color impact, and home gardeners enjoy it for the length of bloom time. Each bulb will send up two to three flower stalks, while also propagating and turning into more bulbs. Its landscape qualities and overall ease of use for home gardeners have made it a favorite.
Sometimes mistaken for a paperwhite, the yellow color in the cup of the Grand Primo contributes a sweetness that helps curtail the sometimes overpowering fragrance of a normal paperwhite. The ability of the bulb to resist blooming until late February helps protect it against the danger of earlier frosts of the season. Because of its ability to thrive almost anywhere in the South and its seldom need to be divided, the Grand Primo has won a special place among Southern gardeners.
