Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
NARCISSUS 'Half Moon Caye'
Half Moon Caye Daffodil, Large-cupped Daffodil
Reversing the usual daffodil color scheme, this division 2 hybrid bears large flowers with pale greenish-yellow petals/tepals and a large white yellow-rimmed cup. THe flowers are held on sturdy stems in mid-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. 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, 'Half Moon Caye' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with hyacinths, late tulips, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
