Twin Sisters or April Beauty: The same Beautiful April Bloomer

Narcissus x medioluteus


Above is a short introduction video to this April blooming beauty.



March offers many opportunities for garden color, but as April approaches, daffodil blooms become scarce. One April blooming narcissus, N. x medioluteus (also called "Twin Sisters" or "April Beauty") affords the opportunity of a late bloom and varying colors other than the traditional yellow. Each bulb of this rapid multiplier sends up a flower stalk bearing two to three blooms of white petals and a yellow cup, offering a sweet fragrance.



This bulb works great in zones 6-8, but for those of us in zone 8, the Narcissus "Twin Sisters" really offers the last of the daffodil beauty for the season. By mid-April, we are usually in the 80s which is just too warm for most Narcissus to last long; however, the "Twin Sisters" bring a lovely pop of color to our garden to remind us that it is still spring and the summer heat is around the corner.


Bloom Time: This heirloom bulb has performed well in zone 8 for a long time. When found in the "wild," this bloom is often lost competing with the April explosion of weeds. However, in the garden or a maintained flower bed, it really is afforded the opportunity to shine

Double Bloom: Each bulb sends up a flower stalk bearing two to three blooms of white petals and a yellow cup, offering a sweet fragrance. The dramatic yellow color of the inner cup draws the attention of the passerby.  When this bulb blooms, there is usually a "shy sister" who almost seems to hide behind her "bolder sister."


Naturalize and History: The Narcissus "Twin Sisters" is a rapid multiplier. You often find this bloom in pastures and abandoned home sites. Narcissus x medioluteus also goes by the name "April Beauty," and was grown by some of the earliest gardeners in America.  It is a natural hybrid of Narcissus poeticus, sometimes called 'Pheasant's Eye,' and the Narcissus tazettaThis bloom has been around since the 16th century. 

What is a Narcissus tazetta? Narcissus tazetta have smaller but numerous blooms on one stalk and are often fragrant.  They are generally more robust in warmer climates than the smaller species flower bulbs.
