Hi, this Yolando Vanveen from vanveenbulbs.com. And, in this series we're identifying our spring blooming flower bulbs. And in this segment. we're going to talk about one of my very favorite pure white daffodils, the Thalia or Thalia. You can pronounce it either way. And, it's just a beautiful, beautiful, daffodil. The Thalia's easy to identify, because they look like little orchid blooms, almost, more than a daffodil, I think. And they're just shaped really beautifully and they have a little bit of a, kind of shininess to them, that I really like. And, instead of one big flower, they always three or four little flowers on them. And, generally they don't get so tall as the other daffodils. These are kind of a little bit taller than they usually get, because they're a little bit shaded. But, they're just beautiful, dainty little daffodils that bloom and bloom and bloom. Just have a little center that's got a little cup on it, looks just like a teacup ride at the amusement park. I just love them. They're just a beautiful, beautiful, daffodil and they're not tall, as we said. And, they bloom for a long period of time. And the fact that they've got lots of different flowers on one stem, means they're going to bloom even longer. They're great in containers too, because they don't get so tall and they multiply real well. And, they do have a slight fragrance, that's really nice. It's not real strong, but it's light, and it's a little "perfumy", kind of a jasmine. I really, really, them. They multiply easily, they're very hardy, just kind of leave them alone, and they'll come back year after year. Next, we're going to talk about the Sir Winston Churchill daffodil.
