Few daffodils have as high a "cute" quotient as the Cyclamineus hybrids, and this 1979 introduction is no exception. The solitary nodding blooms have yellow "petals" surrounding a small cup-shaped deep orange corona. The petals age to gold, and the corona is short and ruffled. The flowers appear on compact stems in early to mid-spring, midway in the daffodil season.
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. Cyclamineus hybrids like moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil and partial 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 grassy leaves photosynthesize to allow them to store plenty of fuel for next spring’s display. Once their leaves start to yellow, they can be cut to the ground. Divide them in summer if bloom or vigor dwindles.
Like all daffodils, 'Falconet' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with species tulips, grape hyacinths, and early-blooming perennials and shrubs.
