One of my main goals last growing season was to make a rather large planting of what I consider to be “fancy” daffodils. While my definition of “fancy” is pretty loose, these ‘Apricot Whirl’ daffodils certainly seem to fit the bill. Last year, I had failed to order them, as they were just a little bit too expensive to be justified in my garden budget. But last fall, I was able to find some bargain bulbs – and boy, was I eager to plant them!
As you can see from the photos, ‘Apricot Whirl’ daffodils are truly a color sensation. When the flowers first open, bright corona petals are a subtle shade of yellow-orange. Over the next few days, that color slowly changes to this intense pink color.
Each of the petals is also quite ruffled. This makes for a “larger-than-life” appearance of each bloom. Though incredibly beautiful, most of my plants were somewhat shorter than I had expected. However, there are many factors that could have played into this. The stems were still plenty long enough to use in flower arrangements.
Overall, I’m very happy with the outcome of my first attempt at growing ‘Apricot Whirl’ daffodils. Have you ever grown ‘Apricot Whirl’ daffodils before?
