|A large-cupped daffodil. The solitary, large blooms have dark red and white petals surrounding a crown of orange-red, with a dot of green in the eye. Basal leaves are green and usually strap-shaped.
Daffodils are excellent for naturalizing along wood's edge, or as an underplanting in the perennial border or ground cover bed. Planting depth is roughly 3 times the width of the bulb. If planted in well drained soil, daffodils are virtually disease and trouble free. Once finished flowering, allow foliage to flop over and dry out. Divide if flower production or size has dwindled.
