Thalia Daffodil, Triandrus Daffodil
With airy, slightly angled petals/tepals arching back angel-like from a bell-shaped cup, this 1921 introduction remains one of the most elegant and desirable daffodils. The clustered, pure white flowers nod slightly from medium-tall stems in mid-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. This cultivar is tolerant of harsh winters and hot summers.
Like all daffodils, 'Thalia' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with tulips, hyacinths, muscari, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It also forces well in containers.
