Buy Narcissus 'Salome' large cupped daffodil bulbs: The flower colour changes as it matures

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The flowers of this large-cupped daffodil can grow up to 9cm across, so they put on an impressive display when they appear in early spring. One of the most intriguing features of this pretty daff however is they way the ruffled cup changes in colour from butter yellw to apricot as the flower matures. Bred in Ireland in 1958 by Lionel Richardson, it is still as popular today as it ever was.

  • Garden care: Plant 10-15cm (4-6in) deep from late summer to early autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head and allow the leaves to die back naturally.

Eye catching

Planted in autumn and all bulbs came up this spring. Strong growth and beautiful flowers. They are unusual so catch the eye and provide a good talking point. The initial colour is yellow but they change to a lovely soft salmon pink colour so really stand out among the more usual yellow ones. I am considering planting some more this year if I can find somewhere for them.

This is a beautiful narcissus. The frilly edged trumpet is a lovely shade of salmon-pink and looks wonderful in pots or in the ground.

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
