In Bloom: ‘Art Design’ Daffodils

Depending upon whichever website I visit, it always seems like ‘Art Design’ daffodils look different. It was for this reason that I was so eager to begin growing my own bulbs. While many sources online show flowers that range in pastel yellow and peachy tones, I quickly found that much of the flower’s color depended upon its age.

As you can see above, ‘Art Design’ daffodils opened in my garden to a very vibrant shade of bright orange. Though the back petals where quite soft in color, the cups were a deep butter color with lighter petals peeking through. This unique color combination, in addition to their full double cup form, make ‘Art Design’ daffodils an absolutely stunning addition to my small cut flower garden.

Large flowers also held their blooms strong and high. Rather than hanging low, as some flowers tend to do, ‘Art Design’ daffodil stems seem to be more than strong enough to hold their weight. They also grew sufficiently long to add to small vases or jam jar type flower arrangements or posies.

Last, but certainly not least, I have to mention fragrance. Though scent is not common in some other varieties, ‘Art Design’ daffodils produce an aroma that is absolutely enchanting. Upon picking my first vase of these flowers, I knew that these would quickly become one of my favorite cultivars.
