A standard for white daffodils, multiple award-winner Narcissus 'Mount Hood' boasts slightly fragrant, large flowers, 4 in. across (10 cm), emerging creamy-white with pale yellow trumpets, which fade to a lovely pale cream before turning as white as snow. Blooming in mid-spring, one flower per stem, this Trumpet Daffodil enjoys a very long blooming season. Great-looking in the garden or in a vase, it is also an excellent naturalizer. This classic white Trumpet Daffodil has been extremely popular since its introduction pre-1938.
- Rising up to 16-20 in. tall (40-50 cm), this daffodil naturalizes well and comes back year after year.
- This perennial bulb is a recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society and the highly coveted Wister Award of the American Doffodil Society.
- 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.
- This Daffodil is a welcomed addition to beds, borders, around shrubs, under deciduous trees or in naturalized areas. Provides 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).
