Amor Daffodil, Small-cupped Daffodil
Appearing toward the end of the daffodil season (mid-spring), the large but elegant flowers of 'Amor' have pristine white petals/tepals with a broad, yellow, orange-rimmed cup. Each flowering stem bears one bloom.
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. Did and divide the bulbs in summer if bloom or vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Amor' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with late tulips, hyacinths, Spanish bluebells, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It also works well massed in formal bedding displays.
