If I’ve learned one important lesson over the course of my daffodil trial, it’s the importance of making certain not to overlook single daffodils. Among the more “traditionally” shaped flowers are some true hidden gems. One new-to-me variety is called ‘Night Cap’ daffodil. Though it was among the last to bloom in my garden, I was not disappointed!
‘Night Cap’ daffodils open to show a beautiful white flower with one of the most interesting cups that I’ve seen. Rather than being a solid color, gardeners enjoy an outer ring that is a very dark pink. Though it sometimes fades, I find that it retained that color well. As the cup moves towards the center of the flower, bright yellow and greenish tones add depth and dimension.
I am so glad to have included a small package of ‘Night Cap’ daffodils in my bulb order last fall. This is one flower that I will definitely enjoy growing in the future. Have you ever grown ‘Night Cap’ daffodil before? If so, I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comment section below. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog!
