NARCISSUS 'Bridal Crown'
Bridal Crown Daffodil, Double Daffodil
One of the earliest double daffodils, 'Bridal Crown' opens its clusters of fragrant, porcelain-white, yellow-flecked pom-poms in early to mid spring. This cultivar received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
Daffodils are hardy, long-lived, clump-forming bulbs. 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. Plant bulbs in early- to mid-fall at a depth two to three times their width. 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, 'Bridal Crown' is a superb cutflower. It is also excellent for winter forcing, scenting entire rooms with its spicy flowers. In the landscape, it pairs well with tulips, hyacinths, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
