NARCISSUS 'Yellow Cheerfulness'
Double Daffodil, Yellow Cheerfulness Daffodil
The small, clustered, pale greenish-yellow flowers of this 1937 introduction have a central yellow "rosebud" of doubled segments. The intensely fragrant flowers bloom from mid- to late spring, very late in the daffodil season. Still a popular cultivar more than 70 years after its introduction, 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 and vigor wane.
Like all daffodils, 'Yellow Cheerfulness' is a superb and long-lasting cutflower. In the landscape, it pairs well with late tulips, Spanish bluebells, alliums, and spring-blooming perennials and shrubs. It is also excellent for massing and winter forcing.
