Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
A cheerful, long-lived, early-blooming daffodil introduced more than 60 years ago, this large-cupped hybrid is still popular in gardens. The very broad, bright buttercup-yellow "petals" frame a shallow, bowl-shaped, yellow cup with a wide-flaring, ruffled, orange-rimmed mouth. The solitary, horizontal to slightly up-facing blooms appear in early spring on calf-high stems.
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 yellow, they can be cut to the ground. Divide them in summer if bloom and vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Delibes' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with early tulips, scillas, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs, and is excellent for massing.
