Daffodil (Narcissus) Trumpet

Pre ordering opens June 1 for shipping/delivery in October
This group is very traditional looking with their large flowers, one bloom per stem, and their very large trumpets, often longer than the flower is wide. Typically bloom mid to later Spring these are a great addition for some great eye catching colour.   Sold as single varieties or in a bundle of 28 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.
Narcissi are deer resistant and best planted in masses for the best visual effect. Planted in the Fall             they naturalize well and require little care once planted. Great as a cut flower, these Spring                                          bloomers flower at different times to provide colour and much needed                                                                                        food for pollinators coming out of hibernation.                                                               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.
