Daffodil (Narcissus) Double

Pre ordering opens June 1 for shipping/ delivery in Sept/October

Incredibly romantic and beautiful, double Narcissi resemble Peonies  more than classic Daffodils because of their packed rows of petals and frills.  Most have little to no fragrance.   Deer resistant, these Fall planted bulbs are best  in groups for excellent visual effect.  They make wonderful cut flowers and should be staked or corralled with wire or twine to protect against rain/wind, as the heads are heavy and could bend.  They thrive planted close to trees and shrubs. Sold as single varieties or in a bundle of 35 bulbs with 5 of each variety so you can try them all.

Native mainly to the Mediterranean, narcissi were grown by the Egyptians and Greeks and brought into English gardens by the 1200s. While thousands of new tulips and hyacinths were being developed, the number of daffodils grew slowly. Maybe 50 date to before 1700, another 350 by 1860. But then a couple of British enthusiasts set to work and from 1860 to 1900 roughly 1000 new varieties were introduced. By 1930 there were another 6000, making the early 20th century a Golden Age. Sadly only a fraction of those varieties survive today.

Some are Wister award winners, the highest award given to Daffodils from the Daffodil Society of America and some are Garden of Merit award winners from the Royal Horticultural Society of the UK.
