Double Daffodil, Grebe Daffodil
An introduction of the Oregon daffodil hybridizer Grant Mitsch, 'Grebe' is a double daffodil with several tiers of yellow tepals/petals surrounding the divided, yellow, orange-tipped corona. The flowers are borne on tall stems from early to mid-spring.
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, 'Grebe' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with hyacinths, tulips, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
