Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Crackington Daffodil, Double Daffodil
A showy double daffodil that bears up well in inclement weather, this recipient of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit has large, fragrant, golden-yellow flowers with orange interiors. The beautifully formed, rose-like flowers are borne from early to mid-spring, earlier than many double daffodils.
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.
Like all daffodils, 'Crackington' is a superb cutflower. It is also excellent for winter forcing. In the landscape, it pairs well with tulips, hyacinths, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
