Named for its heavily ruffled corona, which is so curly-edged as to appear double, this large-cupped daffodil is both coloful and textural. Introduced in 1968, it has six very broad creamy yellow "petals" with rounded or notched tips. The wide-flaring, bowl-shaped cup is brilliant yellow from its base to its curly tip. The solitary, out-facing blooms open on knee-high stems in early to mid-spring, midway through the daffodil season.
Daffodils are hardy, long-lived, clump-forming bulbs. Unlike tulips they are poisonous, so they are not eaten by small mammals and their top growth is 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 grassy leaves photosynthesize to allow them to store plenty of fuel for next spring’s display. Once the leaves start to turn yellow, they can be cut to the ground. Divide them in summer if bloom and vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Curly' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with tulips, hyacinths, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
