Ambergate Daffodil, Large-cupped Daffodil
Bright and blooming very late in the daffodil season (mid- to late spring), 'Ambergate' is a particularly striking daffodil. It has golden apricot petals/tepals with a large, open frilly orange-red trumpet.
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. Dig and divide the bulbs in summer if bloom or vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Ambergate' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with late tulips, white alliums and blue muscari. It is also good for massing in bedding displays.
