Narcissus Cyclamineus “Peeping Tom” is one of those plants with a name written in stardust, apt and appropriate save that this little fellow can spy on me all day. The hybrid is early flowering and reliable, its slender trumpet a welcome sight as winter transforms to Spring. Looking out on the garden as I write I can see how strong is the flower in withstanding the windy weather that can wreak havoc on the heavier narcissus varieties. I have seen images on the web where the petals are swept back like its species parent. Mine have always been like this.
