Acropolis Daffodil, Double Daffodil
Exotic in appearance and spicy in fragrance, 'Acapulco' opens its camellia-like double flowers in mid-spring, late in the daffodil season. The large creamy white pom-pom flowers have orange flecks toward their centers.
Daffodils are hardy, long-lived, clump-forming bulbs that are good for naturalizing. Unlike tulips they are poisonous, so they are not eaten by small mammals and their green tops are not browsed by deer.
These are some of the easiest bulbs to grow. They prefer full to part sun and require average to fertile soil. After blooming, it is good to let their green tops photosynthesize to allow them to store plenty of fuel for next spring’s display. Once their leaves start to turn yellow, they can be cut to the ground.
Like all daffodils, this is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with hyacinths, late tulips, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It is also good for forcing.
