Chromacolor Daffodil, Large-cupped Daffodil
Offering one of the most arresting color schemes of any daffodil, this large-cupped hybrid bears large, white-tepaled flowers with luminous apricot-pink, orange-tinged cups. They are borne singly on stout stems from early to mid-spring. This cultivar received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
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. Pink daffodils such as 'Chromacolor' usually hold their color better with some shade. 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, 'Chromacolor' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with tulips, hyacinths, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It also works well massed in formal bedding displays.
