Actaea Daffodil, Poeticus Daffodil
A late-blooming, fragrant, and elegant cultivar that does well in relatively damp or shady sites, this heirloom poeticus hybrid is one of the best daffodils for naturalizing. Each stem bears one rounded, creamy white flower with a small, yellow, red-rimmed cup.
Daffodils are hardy, long-lived, clump-forming bulbs. 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. Plant bulbs in early- to mid-fall at a depth two to three times their width. 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 spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
