Description

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 jonquilscampernelles, 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.

 

Jonquils are SMALL BULBS but nothing compares to the fragrance and solid gold color of narcissus in naturalized plantings. Expanding both through seed and propagation, the Jonquil is often seen spreading over wide pastures and naturalized gardens alike. It will clump up, but a more typical landscape is a light and airy brush of gold over a large area, like the old homesite we once spotted along a highway expansion project.


Brad and I found the contractor in charge of the construction and asked if we could dig the bulbs. "Son, in two weeks this hill won't be here, so have what you want," he said as he drove off in his truck. The next day the contractor appeared again, this time turning off his truck and visiting with us for a bit longer this time. "Say," he said, "I talked to my wife about what you were doing. Do you think I could have some?" We of course happily shared and he mentioned several other sites in the path of the expansion. He was excited about bulbs, and so were we, as we had helped spread the word just a little farther about the beauty and value of flower-bulbs.


Narcissus jonquilla appears to have a wide genetic variation among this rapid multiplier, and it is a pollen parent to some of our most treasured hybrids such as the Campernelle, Texas Star and many others. Varieties in the South appear to be a strain all their own, which is a new addition to the oldest cultivated plants in history.
