Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Eyelet Daffodil, Small-cupped Daffodil
The large, rounded flowers of 'Eyelet' are creamy white with a small, flat, salmon-pink cup. They are borne singly on stout stems from mid to late 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. Pink daffodils such as 'Eyelet' usually hold their color better with some shade. 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. Dig and divide the bulbs in summer if bloom and vigor dwindle.
Like all daffodils, 'Eyelet' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with late tulips, camassias, Spanish bluebells, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
