Stocky and strong, Narcissus pseudonarcissus (Wild Daffodil) is a small trumpet daffodil with cheerful flowers, 2 in. long (6 cm), boasting dark yellow trumpets surrounded by a soft pale yellow ring of petals. Blooming in early to mid spring, one flower per sturdy stem, they rise atop upright, strap-like, gray-green leaves. Perfect for naturalizing, this well-known European flower brings bright swathes of color to woods and grassland.
- Grows up to 14 in. (35 cm), Wild Daffodil naturalizes well and comes back year after year.
- 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. Prefers acid soils which retain plenty of moisture in the spring growing season and a sunny spot.
- This Daffodil is a welcomed addition to beds, borders, containers or naturalized areas. Provides spectacular drifts of color when planted en masse. 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.
- Native to Western Europe
