Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Daffodil, Daydream Daffodil
Reversing the usual daffodil color scheme, this recipient of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit bears medium-sized flowers with bright greenish-yellow petals/tepals and a large pale yellow ruffled cup that ages to white with a thin yellow rim. The blooms are borne singly on sturdy stems in mid-spring.
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. 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, 'Daydream' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with hyacinths, tulips, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
