NARCISSUS 'Barrett Browning'
What a beautiful daffodil for naturalizing, arrangements and spring beds and borders. The showy daffodil 'Barrett Browning' has clean white petals/tepals punctuated with a small, deep peachy orange trumpet (corona). These appear in early to mid-spring and combine well with early tulips, violas and windflowers.
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. Daffodils make long-lasting and beautiful cut flowers.
