Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
NARCISSUS 'Magic Charm'
Large-cupped Daffodil, Magic Charm Daffodil
The showy narrow salmon-orange corona of this large-cup hybrid is nearly long enough to qualify it as a trumpet daffodil. The petals/tepals are pristine white. Bloom is from mid-to late-spring, toward the end of 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, 'Magic Charm' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with Spanish bluebells, late tulips, camassias, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
