This is a UK native daffodil, and is traditionally found in damp open woodlands, meadows or heath land. The wild daffodil is shorter than most garden varieties. It has pale yellow petals around a darker yellow trumpet, and the flower is actually quite delicate.
Over time the bulbs will form clumps where planted. They look great when planted alongside other Spring native bulbs such as Snowdrops.
The wild daffodil is the county flower of Gloucestershire. It is also called the Lent lily.
The flowers produce lots of nectar for pollinators, especially bumblebees. The flowers nod and move in the wind which attract more pollinators than flowers that stand still.
To attract birds to your garden in Spring and all year round why not add a wild bird feeder to your basket
