Narcissus and Daffodils – striking spring blooms!
My growing appreciation for Narcissus and Daffodils began when I first got the cottage. Taking possession of the property in the fall, the first thing I did was to plant bulbs (CROCUS and SNOWDROPS) in the garden. My hope was to add a splash of colour the following spring. I figured I’d plant fifty bulbs and see what happens.
I’ll never forget seeing those bright, sunny blooms for the first time that following spring. It was proof positive that I was onto a brilliant idea.
Since then, I’ve made it my mission to keep adding new bulbs into the mix. You should do the same! I’d say I now have over five-hundred bulbs in the garden. I’ve even started tucking them into key spots in the forest that leads down to the cottage. They’re all thriving and naturalize really well.
Narcissus and daffodils come in virtually every shape and size and the varieties include a number of favourites. Look for daffodils, daffadowndilly, narcissus, and jonquil to name a few. Head HERE to learn about different varieties.
They have striking flowers with six petal-like tepals that are then topped off by a trumpet-shaped corona. The flowers are generally white, cream-coloured or yellow. Look closely at the way the colours mix with either uniform or contrasting coloured tepals and corona.
