Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
NARCISSUS 'Lemon Brook'
Large-cupped Daffodil, Lemon Brook Daffodil
A reverse take on the usual daffodil color pattern, 'Lemon Brook' is a large-cup hybrid with rounded, deep lemon-yellow, white-eyed flowers ornamented with large, tubular, pale yellow cups that fade to pure white. The flowers are borne singly on sturdy stems from mid- to late-spring, very late in the daffodil season.
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, 'Lemon Brook' is a superb cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with camassias, late tulips, Spanish bluebells, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
