Plant of the Month March 2015
A delicate heirloom (1907) daffodil with
gracefully recurved petals, it resembles an elegant butterfly. Being in the cyclamineus division of daffodils, it has a small, slender downward facing orange cup that fades to yellow, while outer petals that open yellow fade to white. As each flower opens, and others fade the colors blend to create a beautiful tapestry.
A reliable performer in the garden, it blooms early mid spring and over time forms generous clumps. The small, easy to plant bulb makes planting in drifts easy. It grows to a height of 8-12 inches, and is great in pots and forces well.
