The centre ruffles appearing lemon yellow which pale to cream as it matures similar to it’s parent bulb Ice Follies. Be careful with daffodils with heavy heads as they will easily be damaged by strong winds. Try to plant in a more sheltered spot.

Planting Narcissus bulbs
Plant narcissus bulbs in autumn, at around 10-15cm deep, slightly deeper in light soils or grass. Narcissus bulbs prefer well-drained soil that is moist in the growing season in spring, in either a shaded spot or in full sun.
Narcissus are relatively low maintenance and will come back year-on-year. They benefit from being deadheaded as the flowers fade, leave the foliage to die back, this will help it to put energy back into the bulb for flowering the next spring.
You can propagate narcissus bulbs by division when clumps have formed. Gently lift and separate bulbs, to replant as the leaves fade in early summer, or in early autumn before new roots are produced.
