NARCISSUS 'Flying High'
Flying High Daffodil, Small-cupped Daffodil
The large flowers of 'Flying High' have a flat, apricot-orange, yellow-eyed cup and triangular, white, slightly backswept petals/tepals. They are borne singly atop tall stems from mid- to late spring, very late 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 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 in summer if bloom or vigor dwindles.
Like all daffodils, 'Flying High' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with alliums, late tulips, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
