Belcanto Daffodil, Collar Daffodil, Split-corona Daffodil
The bold, bright flowers of this split-corona narcissus make an operatic splash late in the daffodil season (early to mid-spring). The petal-like segments of the broad, flat, lemon-yellow, pink-tinged corona overlie and nearly obscure the creamy white petals/tepals.
Daffodils are hardy, long-lived, clump-forming bulbs that are good for naturalizing. 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. 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. Dig and divide the bulbs in summer if bloom and vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, this is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with hyacinths, late tulips, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It also works well massed in formal bedding displays.
