The name of this magnificent daffodil is a take on the Jewish word for peace which is 'Shalom'. Any way you try to pronounce it, it certainly lives up to its name as just looking at this beauty will bring you peace. The lovely Narcissus 'Salome' has a large bloom at almost 3" across. The petals start off as an ivory color that turn whiter the longer it is open. The white petals make the apricot center cup even more of a contrast. It also depends on your temperatures as to what the center cup looks like. If you have a warm spring, the cup will appear more pink, but if you have a cooler spring, the cup will appear a deeper apricot almost orange color. This bulb will multiply well and it may appear as if you have spent hours in your garden planting something different each year when you haven't.
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.
