You are helping us clean our rows by buying bulbs "in the green" as they say. While we dig we're offering a 10 for $10 sale on jonquils, campernelles, snowflakes, and Grand Primos. We'll ship them to you "in the green" meaning they still have foliage on them. Go ahead and plant the bulbs as soon as you receive them. The foliage will die down naturally as the bulbs go dormant for the summer. Digging now might set the bulbs back for a year, but they will rebound and you'll have them blooming in your garden for generations.
Narcissus tazetta 'Grand Primo' is a superstar from the Gulf Coast to the northern parts of the South, to California, and other warm climates. Vigorous, reliable, perennial all come to mind. Landscapers enjoy the bulb for its massive color impact, and home gardeners enjoy it for the length of bloom time. Each bulb will send up two to three flower stalks, while also propagating and turning into more bulbs. Its landscape qualities and overall ease of use for home gardeners have made it a favorite.
Sometimes mistaken for a paperwhite, the yellow color in the cup of the Grand Primo contributes a sweetness that helps curtail the sometimes overpowering fragrance of a normal paperwhite. The ability of the bulb to resist blooming until late February helps protect it against the danger of earlier frosts of the season. Because of its ability to thrive almost anywhere in the South and its seldom need to be divided, the Grand Primo has won a special place among Southern gardeners.
