Narcissus, Daffodils, Jonquil’s, (I call them Daffies) doesn’t matter what you call them there all the same to me, Absolutely Delightful!
The varities of Daffodils are so large over 13,000 different known hybrids from around the world. The color range of daffodils is lovely to, with yellow, white, peach, pink, and orange, red, line-green, bicolor and even mixed colors.
Among the different types of daffodil hybrids the Double flowering Daffodils are my favorites.There are about 150 different named double flowering Daffodils, with names such as American Heritage, Barnes gold, Boyne Bridge, Chanson, Ebony, Hawley Rose, Pink Delight, Pink Silk, Rampage, Uncle Duncan, Brass Button, Brindabella, Christmas Valley, Huon Chief, Innovator, Muster, Petit Four, Shykoski, Tahiti, Tweeny, Fidelity, Scallawag and many more. At the moment I’m on a journey of discovery, and trying to collect all 150 double flowering Daffodils that are available.
So far I have only collected a hand full of what I would like, they include White Lion, Pink Champagne, Double Fashion, Ice King, and Acropolis. That may not sound like much but when you have hundreds of them all flowering at the same time, it’s just such a beautiful sight, along with all the other bulbs flowering at the moment.
l have planted most of my Daffies a little bit deeper than usual, around about 15 to 20cm only because we get fairly dry here in the summer. The Daffies are in a mostly sunny spot with plenty of afternoon shade. Digging up and planting daffodils every year is OK for other gardeners depending on the zone they’re in, but not for me l just leave them in the ground and they all bloom beautifully every year.
