My first interest in “fancy” daffodils started a few seasons ago, after I had purchased a mixed bag of split corona Narcissus. Upon seeing them bloom, I was immediately drawn to their beauty. Still, split corona daffodils remain to be one of my favorite types to grow. ‘Mallee’ daffodils were quite a nice addition to this season’s cutting garden.
Despite their delicate appearance, the ‘Mallee’ daffodils in my garden were able to withstand three days of heavy rain without much damage – beyond the occasional splash of mud, of course. As you can see from the photos, the edge of each cup displays a lovely soft pink that slowly fades to bright yellow. This trait was something truly unique to this variety in comparison to all the other daffodils that I had trialed this season.
I would love to grow more ‘Mallee’ daffodil plants in the future. What do you think? Have you ever grown ‘Mallee’ daffodils before? If so, I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comment section below. Thank you so much for visiting the blog!
