Although new to us, Van Sion, A.K.A Telamonius Plenus' is a stunning old double flowering daffodil. It's been around since the 1600's!!


Flowering to around 35cm high, with grey-green leaves and double flowers, 10cm across.

The perianth segments are light greenish yellow and twisted, their margins are wavy or recurved and they are mixed together with the corona segments which are deeper yellow, sometimes green at the tips; the flower shape itself is variable, sometimes being fully double, sometimes only the trumpet being double, while the perianth segments remain single and distinct.

Very unique.


Daffodils are among the showiest and easiest to grow of Spring flowering bulbs.
Available in an incredible array of colours and shapes, they are ideal for the Spring flower garden.

Prepare the soil deeply, mixing in compost, or our Bulb Fertilizer, preferably in a sunny, free draining position.
Daffodil bulbs are best planted in bold clumps, 8-10cm deep and 10-15cm apart.
If drainage is a problem, plant shallower, and mound 7-10cm of soil over the bulbs.
