Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Large-cupped Daffodil, Minstrel Daffodil
An heirloom cultivar introduced in 1939, 'Minstrel' has yellow petals/tepals and a large yellow cup.
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,
'Minstrel' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with tulips, muscari, hyacinths, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
