This month has been absolutely filled with flowers. It’s amazing what can happen with a little bit of hardwork, investment, and patience. Today, I wanted to take a closer look at these gorgeous ‘Acropolis’ daffodils. These Narcissus were among the first that I ordered when I initially set out to explore the various “fancier” types of daffodils for the cut flower garden – they certainly did not disappoint!
As you can see, ‘Acropolis’ daffodil blooms are fully double. In fact, many of the flowers were so heavy, that they hung down a bit in the garden. Even though this isn’t ideal, it wasn’t a deal breaker for me. The pure, crisp white color of these flowers is somewhat rare in my yard, as most of my daffodil flowers are bright shades of yellow and orange.
Though I had trouble taking a photo that showed the true scale of the flowers, the blooms are quite large. Each flower fit nicely in the palm of my hand. When compared to some of my more traditional yellow cup daffodils, the ‘Acropolis’ daffodil flowers looked huge. I was also able to detect some fragrance, but not overwhelmingly so.
All in all, I think these ‘Acropolis’ daffodils were a wonderful addition in the cutting garden. What do you think? Have you ever grown ‘Acropolis’ Narcissus before? If so, I’d love to hear all about it in the comments below. I hope you’re having a great day!

I’ve never seen these, but they’re so pretty. Those would look lovely in my prayer garden!
I have Acropolis just about to open. I find that for me, many of the doubles droop terribly from their weight and crash right down to the ground if they’re wet! I have a yellow double that’s been in the yard for many years with a lost tag and they all end up in bouquets due to their weight but I don’t mind. Tahiti though ..seems hold their heads high for me the best.
