NARCISSUS 'Birthday Girl'
Starched and pristine, like a girl's birthday dress before the party, the medium-sized, slightly nodding flowers of this large-cupped hybrid are of good substance and greenish-white hue. The six broad, flat "petals" have a prominent mid-crease; the slightly fluted, tubular corona turns out slightly and gracefully at its tip. Flowers are borne singly on medium-tall, calf-high stems. This lovely cultivar was introduced in 1983 by famed hybridizer Brian Duncan of Northern Ireland.
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, 'Birthday Girl' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with tulips, grape hyacinths, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
