Trumpet Daffodils are quite traditional-looking with their single flower to a stem and their long trumpet (just as long or longer than the length of the perianth segments).
- They are available in a wide range of colors (white, yellow, pink, peach or red) and cup shapes: flat, ruffled or trumpet-like.
- Extremely resistant, they come back year after year and naturalize well.
- They typically grow up to 12-24 inches (30-60 cm) and bloom from March to May.
- Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun or part shade. Keep the soil moist during the growing season, but reduce watering after foliage begins to die back.
- These Daffodils are welcomed additions to beds, borders, containers, around shrubs, under deciduous trees or in naturalized areas. Provide spectacular drifts of color when planted en masse or mixed with any other flowering bulbs. For best visual impact, plant in groups (at least 6 bulbs).
- Deer and rabbit resistant!
- Propagate by removing offsets as the leaves fade in early summer
- Ingestion may cause severe discomfort. Can also be a skin irritant.
The most popular companion of the tulip, daffodils are spring flowering bulbs mostly known as yellow trumpet-shaped flowers. However, daffodils (Narcissus) offer a wider range of flower shapes and colors that are absolutely fabulous when combined with other spring bulbs. Planted in the fall, they produce white, cream, pink, orange or red flowers year after year, that will bloom from early to late spring, depending on weather conditions and cultivars. There are so many types of daffodils that they are classified into 12 groups, mostly reflecting the number or size of the flowers per stem or the shape of the petals.
