Product Description


Hoop Petticoats are loved by all for their beautiful form, but few realize the success this variety will offer. The form looks like an antebellum hoop petticoat—the cup is large and bell shaped and often faces down with the top of the bloom narrowing into what would be compared to the waist of an antebellum dress. The petals are narrow and pointed radiating from the base of the bloom.
Narcissus bulbocodium
is a native of the Mediterranean, where it was found in gritty soils. It is a favorite bulb amongst rock garden societies because if it’s delicate form, beautiful flowers, and ability to grow in the rocky soils. We grow some in the field, but they are small and hard to find in the rows, and we have greatly enjoyed the ones grown in the crates closer to our barn. The “crates” almost become bricks in the summer time, but are almost “golden” bricks that are alive and well when the bulbs bloom in mid-March.

Fall Shipped Bulb
Our fall-planted flower bulbs ship during the ideal time for planting: Sept 15 - Dec 15. Any orders received before or during these dates will ship in this period. After December 1st, dry bulb sales will not normally be available, but special circumstances occasionally allow for such sales and shipping. Thanks!
