This Narcissus, 'Ferris Wheel,' will be the center of attention and demand everyone's attention just like the ferris wheel at the fair. The size and color will draw you in, but the beauty will keep you coming back for more.
Blooms: The Narcissus 'Ferris Wheel' will adorn your April garden with its bright yellow and ruffled orange blooms. The frilly orange centers are so large that the yellow petals peak out from behind them. Each bulb will produce a single bloom but that's ok because each bloom is large at 4-5" across and sits atop the 14-18" stems. This really allows the blooms to make a bold statement in your garden and serve as cut flowers as well.
Plant: Plant the bulb like most daffodils in 6+ hours of winter sun, well-drained soil, avoid standing water, and avoiding too much competition. Plant the bulbs about 2-3 times the size of the bulb (so if the bulb is 1 inch long, plant it 2-3 inches deep). If you are farther north and get very cold during the winter, you may want to plant it about 4-6 inches deep. Space the holes about 3-6 inches apart, and for a more natural looking display, consider planting 2-3 bulbs in each hole.
Landscaping Tip: Narcissus bloom at different times so as one daffodil is ending its bloom time another is just beginning. We like to say that "there is a bulb that blooms every week of the year in warmer climates." Your garden can have consistent flowers that you can enjoy inside or outside for months and carry you all the way from February through April.
Fragrance: This Narcissus has a light, sweet fragrance. This fragrance can add an extra dimension of beauty to the flower and make it more attractive to pollinators like bees and butterflies.
