More Information

Daffodil California – Golden yellow petals with a darker yellow trumpet. California is famous for its sunshine. This daffodil packs in bright yellow colours and a strong trumpet shape.

Daffodil is really a common name for Narcissus and it’s what we think of when referring to a trumpet variety. Daffodils are divided up into many ‘divisions’. The top division being the trumpet. That is, any daffodil where the cup is longer than the petal. It is the most classic form of narcissus and a timeless representation of spring.

Planting Daffodil bulbs

The best time to plant daffodil bulbs is in autumn, in full sun or light dappled shade. Plant at one-and-a-half times their depth, slightly deeper in light soils or grass. Daffodil bulbs are fully hardy perennials that tolerate most soils, but will do best in well-drained soil that is moist in spring.

They benefit from being deadheaded as the flowers fade, allow the leaves to die back so that the bulbs have nutrients to come back the following year.

Established daffodil bulbs will benefit from division when clumps have formed. Gently lift and separate them, to replant as the leaves fade in early summer, or in early autumn before new roots are produced.
