Narcissus poeticus var. recurvus
The Narcissus 'Pheasant's Eye’ bulb provides your garden with a colorful and unique bloom. The flat white petals surround one of the most colorful centers. The yellow center has a green eye but the tip of the center is outlined in red! These large bulbs produce lovely blooms that make your yard or garden the center of attention.
The Narcissus ‘Actaea’ bulb looks very similar to the Narcissus 'Pheasant's Eye'. We will discuss the difference below.
'Actaea': blooms in April, wider petals, works in any kind of well-drained soil
'Pheasant's Eye': blooms in May, smaller petals, works best in damper soil conditions or water more often
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.
