NARCISSUS 'Dick Wilden'
A double-flowered sport of the famous 'Carlton,' 'Dick Wilden' bears sunny, relatively small flowers early in the daffodil season. Greenish yellow "petals" surround a central pompon of numerous densely packed deep-yellow segments. The solitary, out-facing flowers appear on medium-tall stems in early spring. This cultivar was introduced in 1962.
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. 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 grassy leaves start to turn yellow, they can be cut to the ground. Divide them in summer if bloom and vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Dick Wilden' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with early tulips, scillas, hyacinths, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It is excellent for massing.
