NARCISSUS 'Misty Glen'
Recipient of the Amercan Daffodil Society's coveted Wister Award, this large-cupped hybrid bears its elegant white blooms from early to mid-spring, midway through the daffodil season. The six wide, oval, pure white "petals" frame a long, narrowly funnel-shaped corona with a green base and frilled rim. The petals are slightly cupped and wavy-edged. The out-facing blooms are borne singly on medium-tall, nearly knee-high stems. This 1976 introduction has received many additional accolades including 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 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 yellow, they can be cut to the ground. Divide them in summer if bloom and vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Misty Glen' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with tulips, hyacinths, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It is also excellent for winter forcing.
