Product Description

Harsh conditions often deter other bulbs from blooming during the cold February months, but one brave daffodil is in a class all of its own. The traditional trumpet shaped Lent Lily (Narcissus pseudonarcissus), is the first narcissus to be called a "daffodil" and is believed to be the mother of all modern trumpet varieties. We see it blooming all the way down into the central parts of the South, but as we move into the Gulf Coast areas it has a harder time surviving each year.
Steeped in literary history, this trumpet shaped daffodil is reportedly the one Wordsworth so eloquently spoke of in his early poetry. In partial shade or full sun, this tough species daffodil mysteriously performs well with its short stature and disproportionately large blooms. Gardeners welcome the slight fragrance and color during such a bleak winter time.
