Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
NARCISSUS 'Bossa Nova'
Bossa Nova Daffodil, Small-cupped daffodil
A small-cup daffodil that brings a big splash of color to the spring garden, 'Bossa Nova' bears solitary flowers with peachy-yellow petals/tepals and a glowing orange-red cup. The flowers are borne on tall stems in the middle of the daffodil season (early to mid-spring).
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, 'Bossa Nova' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with hyacinths, tulips, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It also works well massed in formal bedding displays.
