Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener

A perky presence in the early spring garden, the small-cupped daffodil 'Birma' opens its yellow, orange-cupped blooms toward the beginning of the daffodil season. The six broadly overlapping, golden-yellow "petals" have a prominent central ridge; the narrowly funnel-shaped cup is fluted, wavy-edged, and occasionally split. Flowers are borne singly on medium, calf-high stems. This heirloom variety was raised in 1938.
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 yellow, they can be cut to the ground. Divide them in summer if bloom and vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Birma' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with tulips, muscari, hyacinths, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It is excellent for massing and naturalizing.
