After growing so many daffodil varieties this season, I have undoubtedly developed a greater appreciation for the diversity among these flowers. ‘Love Call’ daffodil is no exception to this. After planting a package of ten bulbs last fall, I was eager to watch as these started to bloom in the cut flower garden.
Upon first glance, I found ‘Love Call’ daffodil to be very similar to ‘Cassata’ daffodil. Both are a type of Narcissus known as a split-corona. This refers to the interesting appearance of the flowers’ cups. ‘Love Call’ daffodils are much darker than ‘Cassata.’ As you can see from the photo above, the rich yellow color is very saturated.
Though I haven’t noticed any issues with color fading in my garden, the flowers seem to have the tendency to face their heads low. Have you ever grown ‘Love Call’ daffodil before? If so, I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comment section. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog!
