More Information

Narcissus Tahiti is a brilliant double yellow narcissus which is difficult to express in a photograph. Where as many double daffodils can be full of frills and petals, Tahiti has a broad flower that makes space for the doubling petals and corona. The lemon yellow petals are washed in deeper yellow towards the base. This gives a bicolour effect that works really well once they bulbs are planted in large numbers. The corona is small and adds a subtle but strong accent of deep orange.

Narcissus Tahiti are a hardy bulb and will last for many years.

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

Daffodils bulbs are easy to plant and don’t require any special treatment once they have been planted. Plant them in autumn, at one-and-a-half times their own depth, slightly deeper in light soils or grass. Daffodil bulbs prefer well-drained soil that is moist in the growing season in spring, in full sun or light dappled shade.

Daffodil are relatively low maintenance and will come back year-on-year. They benefit from being deadheaded as the flowers fade, and leave the foliage to die back so it can feed the bulbs ready for the next spring season.

You can propagate Daffodil 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.
