Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Conestoga Daffodil, Large-cupped Daffodil
A spectacular large-cup daffodil and recipient of the American Daffodil Society's Pannill Award, 'Conestoga' has rounded white petals/tepals which beautifully set off the broad, apricot-orange, amber-eyed cup. Bloom occurs in the heart of the daffodil season, in early and mid-spring.
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 or vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Conestoga' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with hyacinths, tulips, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
