Intrigue Jonquil, Jonquil, Jonquilla
An unusual and outstanding jonquilla hybrid, this reverse bicolor bears fragrant clusters of golden-yellow, white-eyed flowers with a central creamy yellow cup that fades to white. The flowers are held on compact stems from mid- to late spring. This cultivar received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Merit
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. Jonquilla hybrids are somewhat less cold-hardy and more heat-tolerant than most other hybrid narcissus, and make excellent choices for areas such as the Southeast United States. Dig and divide bulbs in summer if bloom and vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Intrigue' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with late tulips, camassia, Spanish bluebells, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
