The Narcissus 'Sun Disc' will add a touch of whimsy to your garden. These petite jonquil blooms look great at the front of your garden bed so that they can't be missed. Their color will pop as the bloom in front of the foliage of your second layer of daffodils. This bouquet of yellow has been around since 1946!
Blooms: The Narcissus 'Sun Disc' will adorn your May garden with its late blooms. The buttery yellow petals surround a darker yellow flat cup. Each stem contains multiple 1-2" blooms. Each bloom feels as if the sun has opened up to greet you. Because these are smaller they do great as borders, fillers in pots, or tucked into rock gardens. The blooms have a lovely fresh fragrance. The petals will fade to an off-white as they age giving your flowers a completely new look. These look great in a vase of flowers on your table.
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.
