In Bloom: ‘Sunny Girlfriend’ Daffodils in the Cut Flower Garden

‘Sunny Girlfriend’ daffodil is yet another Narcissus that so often is described as displaying beautiful shades of peach and salmon. While this is definitely true, I’ll admit that it wasn’t initially one of my favorites. Unfortunately, like some others, this plant was hit especially hard by a spring thunderstorm. As a result, the flowers drooped and pointed down towards the ground. Fortunately, their beauty in a vase made up for this minor inconvenience. 

‘Sunny Girlfriend’ daffodils have a really interesting color. As you can see from the photo above, the crown of the flower has a very unique appearance that almost seems to fade. The bright yellow centers really provide a nice contrast to the peachy color around the edge of the crown.

These flowers look quite a bit different depending upon the lighting, too. Mine are planted in a flower bed which receives a bit of shade. It’s likely that this may have impacted how well my flowers held their color after opening. Even the color of the older flowers seemed to be very saturated. I think it would be interesting to plant these in a bed that receives more sun next year.

Though most websites note that this variety is fragrant, I have yet to notice any. Still, I have really enjoyed using these lovely flowers in vases and arrangements. Have you ever grown ‘Sunny Girlfriend’ daffodils before? If so, I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comments below. Thank you so much for stopping by!
