Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener

The large showy blooms of this double daffodil have two outer whorls of oval, broad yellow "petals," surrounding a central pompon of smaller incurved orange and red segments. The solitary, out-facing flowers appear on stately, thigh-high stems in early to mid-spring. This award-winning cultivar was introduced by Oregon Bulb Farms in 1975.
Daffodils are hardy, long-lived, clump-forming bulbs. Unlike tulips they are poisonous, so they are not eaten by small mammals and their top growth is 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 grassy leaves photosynthesize to allow them to store plenty of fuel for next spring’s display. Once the leaves start to turn yellow, they can be cut to the ground. Divide them in summer if bloom and vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Apotheose' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with tulips, hyacinths, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It is excellent for massing.
