Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
NARCISSUS 'Scarlet Tanager'
Scarlet Tanager Daffodil, Small-cupped Daffodil
Dainty and dazzling, 'Scarlet Tanager' offers brilliant flowers of a relatively modest size. The rounded yellow blooms – each bearing a short, funnel-shaped, brilliant orange-red cup – are borne on tall stems from mid- to late spring.
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. Divide them in summer if bloom or vigor dwindles.
Like all daffodils, 'Scarlet Tanager' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with late tulips, Spanish bluebells, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs.
