In Bloom: ‘Isha’ Daffodils

No daffodil trial would be complete without the inclusion of at least a few varieties of traditional yellow blooms. Now that some of these varieties have started to produce flowers, I've been regretting that I didn't order a wider variety. 'Isha' daffodils have been a lovely addition to my late season cut flower garden. Much…

In Bloom: Fragrant ‘Gay Tabor’ Daffodils

Aside from my very obvious garden infatuation with pink daffodils, my large growing trial also focused on fragrance. After reading that 'Gay Tabor' daffodils are both double and highly scented, I knew that I wanted to order a small ten count package of bulbs. 'Gay Tabor' daffodils are known for their fluffy double flowers. I'll…

‘Delnashaugh’ Double Pink Daffodil

As our focus on pink daffodil varieties continues this year, we come to the 'Delnashaugh' daffodil. Like so many others that I've already showed here on the blog, 'Delnashaugh' is a beautiful bright pink double bloom. Though 'Delnashaugh' daffodil looks very similar to the likes of 'Replete' and 'Pink Champagne,' they did bloom just a…

In Bloom: ‘Pink Champagne’ Daffodils

In the online catalog, 'Pink Champagne' daffodils promised large fluffy double blooms - and it definitely delivered! Though 'Pink Champagne' daffodils are very similar to the blooms of a few other types of daffodils that I have in the garden this season, their late bloom period made them a Narcissus that was worth having in…

‘Flower Surprise’ Daffodil: My New Favorite Spring Flower!

'Flower Surprise' daffodils were some of the most expensive that I purchased last year. At the time, I could barely justify the price of about $2.10 each. After watching them come into bloom, I'm so glad that I did! 'Flower Surprise' daffodils are an insanely gorgeous double bloom. The color is stunning. New flowers open…

‘Avalanche’ Daffodils are Seriously Cute!

When I was making my first bulb orders last year, I couldn't help but be drawn to 'Avalanche' daffodils. Rather than producing one large flower, each stem creates roughly 6-10 blooms. This makes them an extremely interesting addition to vases and cut flower arrangements. The 'Avalanche' daffodils in my garden are much shorter than the…

‘Barrett Browning’ Daffodil: A Classic Garden Narcissus

When I began to collect various types of daffodils, I often overlooked some of the more "simple" varieties. Though I had purchased many more hard-to-find varieties, I quickly found that my garden was missing several classic Narcissus. As it would turn out, 'Barrett Browning' daffodil was one such cultivar. With a little research, I was…

‘Orangery’ Daffodil: Bright, Split Corona Cup Daffodils

One of my main goals in the spring garden this season was to introduce a wide array of daffodils. I've always enjoyed the arrival of early season flowers, but taking a closer look at the various shapes and colors available is really exciting to me. Today, we're taking a closer look at 'Orangery' daffodils. Much…

My First Foray into Split Corona Daffodils

I'm definitely not a stranger to daffodils. In fact, daffodil bulbs were one of the first garden-related investments that I ever made. Roughly five years ago, I bought a huge bag of mixed daffs. In that bag, there were a few doubles and a couple smaller flowered jonquil types - but generally nothing fancy. Enter…
