Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
NARCISSUS 'Dutch Master'
Dutch Master Daffodil, Trumpet Daffodil
Big, bright, and bold, the cultivar 'Dutch Master' is the epitome of "daffodil". The large, brash, golden yellow flowers with long, flared, frilled trumpets and slightly forward-swept "petals" are borne on tall stems in early spring. This cultivar received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
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. Divide them in summer if bloom or vigor dwindles.
Like all daffodils, 'Dutch Master' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with species tulips, scillas, muscari, and early-blooming perennials and shrubs. This relatively inexpensive cultivar is wonderful for planting in showy masses. It also is good for winter forcing.
