This daffodil has large, long-lasting flowers that are a deep, sunny yellow with orange cups. Plant these in large groups for a spectacular mid-season show. Great for forcing indoors.
CareGrow in average, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. In autumn, plant bulbs from 1.5 to 5 times the bulbs' height (3 inches or more in cold climates). Under glass, grow in 1 part grit and 2 parts soil mix. Deadhead seed heads (except those of species, for dispersal) and allow leaves to photosynthesize for 6 weeks before cutting back, including plantings in turf. Lift and divide clumps if they become overcrowded or perform poorly.
Propagation Separate bulbs and replant in early summer or early fall.
