  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March and April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 12/14

    If you are looking for something a little different, then this might be just the ticket. Unlike the vast majority of the other daffodils, its 'cup' is split and lies almost flattenened against the outer petals (perianth). What is even more interesting about this one, is the way it changes colour as the flower ages, so initially the inner petals (corona) are a yellow-orange, but they gradually turn pinkish apricot as they mature.

  • Garden care: Wearing gloves plant bulbs 10-15cm deep and 10cm apart in autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head the flowers, but do not be tempted to cut back or tidy the foliage after flowering as this will interfere with the bulbs ability to store energy for the following year's flowers.

Wow!

I love these. As they are quite expensive compared to other Narcissus bulbs, I only purchased 5 last Autumn to try them out. They are planted together in a raised bed near the house and all came up this Spring. They certainly didn't disappoint and completely wowed everyone that has seen them. They come up yellow, the centres quickly change to a salmon pink and they are so unusual that they completely stand out from all the other Spring bulbs around them. I intend getting some more this year. I have added some pictures showing the flowers at two stages of their colour change. The images with the pinker flowers were taken six days later than the other two pictures.

Bulb blindness

Bulbs produce lovely foliage but no flowers. Either no buds at all appear or those that do are dry and virtually empty of petals. Daffodils (Narcissi) are usually the worst affects, especially multi-headed or double forms.

Plan ahead with bulbs

One of the great things about gardening is being able to look into the future with enthusiasm, and part of that is planting now for next spring. A gardener knows, when handling papery brown bulbs, that these insignificant little things will produce early
