From the lowest regions of the South to the Zone 7 areas, this bulb multiplies and blooms year after year. Since the first half of the last century, this treasure has done nothing but impress and delight warm climate gardeners. It is not steeped in antiquity along with some of our other bulbs that date back to the Roman empire, but it has not taken long for Southerners to realize the power of the yellow petals and gold cups that come back year after year every March.
Many people wonder why they should plant different varieties of Narcissus. There are multiple reasons, but let's just talk about two. First, Narcissus bloom at different times so as one daffodil is ending its bloom time another is just beginning. We end every newsletter with the phrase "There is a bulb that blooms every week of the year in warmer climates." Your garden will have consistent flowers that you can enjoy inside or outside for months. Narcissus begin blooming at the end of January all the way through May. Secondly, you are providing depth and diversification to your garden. Every daffodil is different even when you think "They are all yellow." Besides blooming at different times, the petals are different shapes or the cup color is slightly different. A great benefit is that the foliage of the early Narcissus bloomers can be covered up by the later bloomers which makes your garden continually attractive.
We usually take time here to tell you some great ways to landscape the bulb we are featuring. We have an entire article about that if you want to click on the link Narcissus and Daffodils that will take you to our website's page and then scroll to the bottom where you can read about landscaping, daffodils, narcissus, where to plant, and several more topics.
Color: The most obvious difference between the Narcissus Golden Dawn and other varieties of Narcissus is its color. The petals of the flower are typically bright yellow, while the trumpet or corona is a vibrant shade of orange or gold. This color combination is not found in all varieties of Narcissus.
Size: The Narcissus Golden Dawn is a larger flower than some other varieties of Narcissus. The flower itself can grow up to 5 inches in diameter, and the stem can reach up to 16 inches in height. This makes it a more striking and dramatic flower than some other varieties of Narcissus.
Bloom Time: While most Narcissus varieties bloom in the spring, the Narcissus Golden Dawn has a slightly later bloom time. It typically blooms in mid to late spring, after many other Narcissus varieties have finished blooming. This can make it a nice addition to a garden or landscape that needs a burst of color later in the season.
Fragrance: The Narcissus Golden Dawn has a light, sweet fragrance that is not present in all varieties of Narcissus. This fragrance can add an extra dimension of beauty to the flower and make it more attractive to pollinators like bees and butterflies
