Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
NARCISSUS 'Ice Follies'
Ice Follies Daffodil, Large-cupped Daffodil
A popular large-cupped daffodil, 'Ice Follies' bears glistening white flowers with a central chartreuse-yellow, ruffled corona, which eventually fades to white. Bloom is in early spring. This cultivar received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
These are some of the easiest bulbs to grow. Daffodils need 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 food in the bulb 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, 'Ice Follies' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with species tulips, scillas, grape hyacinths, and early-blooming perennials and shrubs. This relatively inexpensive cultivar is wonderful for planting in showy masses. It also is good for winter forcing.
