NARCISSUS 'Angel Eyes'

Family

Amaryllidaceae

Botanical Name

NARCISSUS 'Angel Eyes'

Plant Common Name

Angel Eyes Daffodil, Poeticus Daffodil

General Description

This Poeticus-type daffodil has clean white petals with a small central greenish corona edged in orange-red. Flowers of 'Angel Eyes' appear in mid to late spring and combine well with early tulips and pansies in the garden. This is an American-bred hybrid introduction.

Daffodils are hardy, long-lived, clump-forming bulbs that are good for naturalizing. Unlike tulips, they are poisonous, so their bulbs 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.

The blooms of ‘Angel Eyes’ are superb long-lasting cut flowers. In the landscape, they pair well with late-blooming tulips and small spring-flowering shrubs.
