Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener

One of many outstanding daffodils hybridized by Grant Mitsch of Oregon, the large-cupped cultivar 'Audubon' has pure white "petals" and a creamy white, coral-rimmed, bowl-shaped cup. The three outer "petals" are broad, blunt, and flat; the inner three are slightly curled. The corona has a ruffled mouth that is sometimes split. The solitary, out-facing flowers appear on medium-tall stems in mid-spring, toward the end of the daffodil season. Raised about 1955, this cultivar varies considerable in the coloration and size of its cup.
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, 'Audubon' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with late tulips, alliums, bluebells, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It is excellent for massing.
