In our last post, we took a closer look at the ‘Lingerie’ daffodil. In seeing these photos, I can’t deny the uncanny resemblance between it and the ‘Salou’ daffodil. Admittedly, the two looked almost identical when picked in person. Fortunately, the photos do a better job of showing the very subtle difference in color.
‘Salou’ daffodils are a full double Narcissus with white outer petals and very pretty yellow bits in the center. In my garden, they were somewhat smaller than the ‘Lingerie’ daffodils. That could be the result of a variety of factors, including the bulb size at planting last year.
In the photo above, you can see three daffodils that were very similar to each other. On the far left is the ‘Lingerie’ daffodil, the middle is the ‘Double Star’ daffodil, and the right is the ‘Salou.’ Since the differences are so subtle, I’m very interested to see how their bloom times will differ next season – after they have become established.
Have you ever grown ‘Salou’ 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!
