When I began to collect various types of daffodils, I often overlooked some of the more “simple” varieties. Though I had purchased many more hard-to-find varieties, I quickly found that my garden was missing several classic Narcissus. As it would turn out, ‘Barrett Browning’ daffodil was one such cultivar.
With a little research, I was able to find that ‘Barrett Browning’ daffodil was first introduced back in 1945. As you can see from the photos, it’s crisp white appearance is quite lovely. Once open, the bright orange color of the center cup deepens very quickly. Though I have yet to use any of these flowers in arrangements, I can only imagine that they will look very nice.
Since ‘Barrett Browning’ daffodil has been used as both a pollen and seed parent in daffodil hybridizing, I am eager to do the same here in my own yard. Have you ever grown ‘Barrett Browning’ daffodil before? What did you think? I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comments below! I hope you’re having a wonderful day!
