Narcissus 'Velocity' (Cyclamineus Daffodil)

Daffodil 'Velocity', Cyclamineus Daffodil 'Velocity', Miniature Daffodil, Spring Bulbs, Spring Flowers


Narcissus 'Velocity' is a charming Miniature Daffodil boasting large flowers, 3 in. across (8 cm), adorned with brilliant golden-yellow, gracefully backswept petals and a long, bright reddish-orange trumpet. Blooming in early to mid spring, one flower per stem, this refined and delicate daffodil copes well with poor weather conditions. A standout in the garden with its bent back petals as if windswept, reminiscent of cyclamen.

  • Rising up to 8-10 in. tall (20-25 cm), this daffodil naturalizes well and will multiply over time.
  • 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. More tolerant of shade and heavy, damp soil than other daffodils.
  • Welcomed addition to beds, borders, containers, rock gardens, 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).
  • Deer and rabbit resistant!
  • To be planted in fall
  • Propagate by removing offsets as the leaves fade in early summer
  • Ingestion may cause severe discomfort. Can also be a skin irritant.
  • Cyclamineus or Miniature Daffodils include small-sized (8-16 in. tall, 20-40 cm), early spring bloomers with flowers angling downwards and perianth petals that are swept-back. More shade tolerant than most daffodil varieties, these Miniature Daffodils naturalize easily. Great choices for rock gardens, containers and forcing.
