Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
A large-cupped daffodil whose colors do not fade in bright sun, this 1964 introduction bears pale greenish yellow flowers with smoldering red-orange cups in mid- to late spring, toward the end of the daffodil season. The six broadly oval "petals" are often folded at their margins. The wide-flaring, bowl-shaped cup has a lightly ruffled and split rim. The solitary, out-facing blooms perch atop calf-high stems.
Daffodils are hardy, long-lived, clump-forming bulbs. Unlike tulips they are poisonous, so they are not eaten by small mammals and their top growth is 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 grassy leaves photosynthesize to allow them to store plenty of fuel for next spring’s display. Once the leaves start to turn yellow, they can be cut to the ground. Divide them in summer if bloom and vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Kissproof' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with late tulips, Spanish bluebells, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It is excellent for massing.
