The Narcissus 'Barrett Browning' is an eye-catching addition to your spring garden. The spring bloom will provide your garden with dramatic color while you await your other blooms. This bulb has been around since 1945!
Blooms: The Narcissus 'Barret Browning' will adorn your April garden with its tall bright blooms. The bright red-orange cup is surrounded by pure white petals. The blooms have a lovely fresh fragrance. These look amazing in an area where you to direct attention. They 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.
