If you want color in your late March or early April garden, then look no farther than the Narcissus 'Vulcanello.' This Narcissus is filled with bright color from its blooms to its deep green foliage. Consider planting en masse for a dramatic display.
Blooms: The Narcissus 'Vulcanello' will add a pop of April color that you want in your spring daffodil garden. Each bloom is filled with color as layers of golden yellow surround and are mixed among layers of frilly orange. adorn your April garden with its blooms. Each bloom is 3-4" across to make it even more dramatic. The 16-18" stem from each bulb only produces one bloom, but these are large blooms that demand attention. 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.
