The Tenby daffodil is a species which some people think is unique to Britain.

The Tenby daffodil is a species which some people say (it is disputed!) is unique to Britain.

It almost became extinct when wild bulbs were dug up across Wales to satisfy a Victorian garden craze in the late 19th century. It has pale yellow flowers with a darker central trumpet.

The long, narrow leaves are slightly greyish in colour and rise from the base of the stem. Look for it in Springwoods.
