Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
NARCISSUS 'American Heritage'
American Heritage Daffodil, Trumpet Daffodil
An unusual color scheme sets this trumpet daffodil apart from the pack. Its large mid-spring flowers have yellow petals/tepals with white bases, surrounding a long peachy-pink trumpet with a flared, ruffled tip.
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, 'American Heritage' is a superb, long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
