Miniature Daffodil, Topolino Daffodil
A cheering sight in early spring, this perky dwarf trumpet daffodil has starry, pointed, creamy-white petals and a relatively large, lobed, lemon-yellow trumpet. The grassy leaves are gray-green. This cultivar received 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 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, 'Topolino' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with early tulips, scillas, Dutch crocuses, and early-blooming perennials and shrubs. It is excellent for massing and winter forcing.
