In Bloom: ‘Pink Wonder’ Daffodil

While I may have touched upon growing 'Pink Wonder' daffodil last season, I couldn't ignore it when it burst into bloom again - especially with our ongoing daffodil trial in the backyard cut flower garden. I originally began growing this flower as a part of a bargain split cup corona mix. Unlike 'Cassata' and 'Orangery,'…

Planting ‘Geranium’ Daffodil for a Profusion of Blooms

Besides 'Avalanche' Narcissus, which I have already featured on the blog, I planted very few multi-flower daffodil types. Another variety, called 'Geranium' daffodil, has easily been one of the most production flowers in this year's cut flower patch. Let's take a closer look at this beauty! Upon first glance, I honestly wasn't quite impressed with…

‘British Gamble’ Daffodil – Not a Gamble in the Cutting Garden

Though completely unexpected, 'British Gamble' daffodil has easily become one of my top five daffodils that I grew this year. Though I did my best to take some good photos, I fear that strong rain made the process very difficult. I can't let a little bit of bad timing distract from the beauty of this…

‘Can Can Girl’ Daffodil: Happily Dancing Its Way Through the Spring Flower Garden

'Can Can Girl' daffodil was very much of the Narcissus that I was most excited to grow last fall. For whatever reason, I'm always drawn to flowers that are full and double looking. Rather than the entire flower being double, 'Can Can Girl' daffodils are very unique. As you can see from the photos, the…

‘Pink Charm’ Daffodils: A Truly Charming Addition to the Flower Garden

In my quest to explore the wide world of daffodils this year, I knew that it would be important to not be distracted by all the "fancy" double blooms available. It was for this reason that I selected 'Pink Charm' daffodil. As you can see from the photo above, the overall shape and structure is…

Sneak Peek: 2021 Favorite Daffodils in the Cutting Garden

Over the last weeks, I've been carefully tracking and photographing this year's trial of various daffodils. I've always love daffodils, and the opportunity to try so many different types has been very special. I plan to continue making individual posts dedicated to each type that I'm growing. However, some of these "group" photos were just…

In Bloom: ‘Acropolis’ Double Daffodil

This month has been absolutely filled with flowers. It's amazing what can happen with a little bit of hardwork, investment, and patience. Today, I wanted to take a closer look at these gorgeous 'Acropolis' daffodils. These Narcissus were among the first that I ordered when I initially set out to explore the various "fancier" types…

In Bloom: ‘Replete’ Daffodils

Today, we're focusing on yet another lovely double flower. 'Replete' daffodils open to bright white, with peachy pastel shades around where one would anticipate the cup. As the flowers open, the peach color is much darker. I actually prefer the bloom after they have been open a few days. This allows the color to slowly…

‘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…
