Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Jonquilla, Kokopelli Jonquil
Fragrant clusters of small, rounded, bright greenish-yellow flowers with blunt yellow cups are a sunny, cheerful presence in the mid-spring garden. This comely and compact jonquilla hybrid received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden 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. 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, 'Kokopelli' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with late tulips, muscari, Spanish bluebells, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It is excellent for winter forcing.
