Narcissus - Division 1:
Trumpet Daffodil
Cultivars

The name of the genus is derived from Narcissus, son of the Boeotian river god Cephisus and the nymph Liriope. Narcissus is also said to come from the Greek 'narke' meaning 'numbness' and refers to its narcotic properties.

March, April

18-24 x 4 (44-60 x 10)

Blue-Green

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Plant bulbs 5-6" (12.5-15 cms) deep in fall. Bulbs prefer a neutral to slightly acidic, sandy loam. After the flowers have bloomed, the top portion of each flower stem may be removed to prevent seed formation, but foliage should not be cut back until it begins to yellow. Flowers usually face the sun, so bulbs should be grown with any shade areas at the rear of the planting. Bulbs can be left undisturbed for a number of years. Propagation by bulb division is easiest.

Very large flowers with broad creamy white petals and large lemon yellow trumpets with slightly frilled edges. Strong growing with strappy blue-green foliage. Mid-spring flowering.

'Little Beauty' 1W-Y

Creamy-White/Yellow

narcissuscflolittlebeautydeeproot

March

(15 x 10)

Dark Green

This little daffodil may be naturalised in short fine grass, but its ideal situation is at the front of a border or rock garden, in sun or dappled shade. Plant it at one and a half times its own depth, or slightly deeper if the soil is light, or if it is being naturalised in grass. Daffodils do tolerate a wide range of soils, but are best grown in moderately fertile, well drained soil that is moist during the growing season. The flowering time for ‘Little Beauty’ is early March.

One of the best miniature trumpets with a greenish-white perianth and a bright yellow corona. Good in pots or garden and is a strong grower. March flowering and lasts well.

It can tolerate cold, snowy weather and it has a long blooming period. 'Rijnveld's Early Sensation' combines nicely with early crocuses and dwarf irises.
Very early flowering with a soft yellow perianth and slightly deeper trumpet.

In milder winters, or in particularly sheltered gardens, this trumpet daffodil can be in bloom in late December or early January, so if you want an early start to the season, then this is by far the best one to choose. It flowers a good few weeks earlier than many of the other big trumpet types, often producing blooms before the foliage has had a chance to reach its full height. This makes it ideal for extending the season - as well as lifting the spirits in the depths of winter.

Narcissus - Division 2:
Large-Cupped
Daffodil Cultivars

The only other well known event in Saint Narcissus' life took place when, on an unknown date, he was accused by three men of an unnamed, yet horrible, sin. The way these men sought to bring down the holy bishop leads one to wonder if demonic possession was at work. Each man asked that he might, respectively, be killed by fire, devoured by leprosy, and struck blind if what he said was proved false.

Narcissus kept his composure throughout this ordeal and simply looked at it as an opportunity to live the life of a hermit. After forgiving his accusers, he disappeared into the desert. Later on, one of the men, along with his entire family, died during a house fire. The second contracted leprosy and the third cried from fear and contrition to the extent that he lost his sight.

Dark Green

Triandrus-
type daffodils usually have one or two nodding flowers per stem and are noted for their wonderful, often fruity, fragrance.
Narcissus ‘Hawera’
(pre-1950, Zones 3–8)
is a miniature
triandrus-
type daffodil with many elfin, pale-yellow
nodding bells per stem, each with a demitasse-
shaped cup surrounded by swept-back petals. This adaptable daffodil can grow in dry areas, in pots, in full sun, and in partial shade. It contrasts nicely with Muscari armeniacum and is
exquisite with hellebores.

Raised in New Zealand, hence the Maori name, this is a small yet elegant daffodil. Its narrow foliage and soft yellow, multi-headed flowers look great in rock gardens, at the edge of paths, in containers, troughs or window-boxes. Scented. With its narrow leaves it is happier in a drier and sunnier site than many of its cousins. Pack them in quite tightly for a mass of colour on a rockery. These do not fit into the other groupings, but are nevertheless perfect for garden use.

April, May, June

12-15 x 8 (30-37.5 x 20)

Strap-like Green

Jonquil bulbs are planted four inches deep in autumn. Most jonquils like a very sunny location, but also do well in partial shade. However, salmon to pink-trumpet varieties like 'Bell Song' require a bit of protection and would in the main prefer dappled sunlight, or their rare color rapidly fades.

When ours first start blooming in April (2003), the surrounding deciduous shrubbery permitted them sufficient light as they were not yet completely re-leafed. But since small jonquils bloom until June, they were quite deeply shaded by the end of their cycle, so our choice of location was not the best planned.

Plant them really quite deeply with 5-6" (12-15cm) of soil over the bulb, where it will remain more cool, more moist and safer from activity above them in the summer. Do not be tempted to cut back or tidy the foliage after flowering as this period of replenishment of the bulb's starchy food reserves is critical to future flowering. A liquid feed while starchy leaves are still green will benefit clumps in poorer soil. I would suggest you plant them in distinct groups and not randomly as the effect is generally better. They should clump up from being planted about 4-5" (10-12cm) apart, further apart for more 'relaxed' planting

Narcissus ‘Quail’ is a delicate daffodil in appearance but actually is robust in nature and looks most effective planted in a large drift where its stems, which hold two or three small yellow flowers, can be fully admired. At RHS Garden Hyde Hall we use it in large drifts around the Lower Pond where it looks fantastic against winter stem shrubs such as dogwoods and willows. We also use it in smaller groups through the Eastern Courtyard to add a splash of spring colour as visitors arrive.

Richly scented flowers appear in clusters of up to six on top of sturdy stems in March and April. The pure white petals contrast brilliantly with the bright orange cup. Plant in groups where they can be left undisturbed and the clumps will get bigger each year. This is also a good variety for pots.

Garden care: Wearing gloves plant bulbs 10-15cm deep and 10cm apart in autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head the flowers, but do not be tempted to cut back or tidy the foliage after flowering as this will interfere with the bulbs ability to store energy for the following years flowers.

Dwarf, robust early to mid spring flowing bulb. 4 or more small flowers per stem. Creamy yellow petals and a lemon cup. Fragrant. Reliable and spreads easily.
This spot underneath the enormous climbing rose turned out to be too shady, so that the blooms were only moderately good in 2002 & 2003. So as autumn 2004 arrived, I lifted the bulbs, adding five more newly obtained 'Minnow' bulbs, & planted them along a ledge in the roadside's xeriscape rugosa rose garden. They flowered much better the following March than ever they had in the previous location.

It prefers a great deal of sun but will tolerate a bit of shade, & is hardy for zones 5 through 9. On Puget Sound the turf emerges in December. It begins flowering lightly by about mid-March but really picks up steam in April. The blooms sometime linger into May. When it dies back in summer, the bulb needs to remain relatively dry.

In a warmer climate it can bloom as early as November. It rather likes Puget Sound weather patterns of wet winter & dry summers, so that it can go in a low-maintence roadside garden. Ours wasn't originally on the roadside, but near the house, growing at the foot of a Lady Bank's Rose that requires no watering to speak of. The location was chosen because this daffodil, like the Bank's Rose, mainly needs no more than ordinary rainfall.

Narcissus bulbocodium Golden Bells Group is a particularly vigorous and reliable selection of this species, with golden yellow flared trumpet flowers.

There is one important difference in the two strains, however. Golden Bells blooms later than our patch of regular Narcissus bulbocodium. Our wild patch is veritably a winter bloomer at their height of blossom throughout March, whereas "Golden Bells" is in at its height of flower in April. If this were the one & only distinguishing feature, that would be enough to justify having two otherwise identical strains, for between the two, this means hoopskirts are flowering a long while, eight to nine weeks combined.

Early spring flowering and leaves usually die back by mid-summer. Good for naturalising in grass or woodland.

It seems to have been in decline since the 1930s, although why no-one seems sure. Like the Common Bluebell, as a woodland plant they require shade in the summer. Daffodils don't seem to be much visited by honey bees, but are more usually pollinated by bumblebees. All parts of the daffodil are poisonous.

Wonderful in miniature bulb gardens and small containers. This tiny daffodil can easily be forced and is a good candidate for unusual small containers such as tea cups and miniature strawberry pots. It grows best in sandy, peaty soil which is not allowed to completely dry out in summer. Prefers full sun. Protect from slugs.

This is a threatened species in the wild, but it is amenable to cultivation. It can be grown as a cold hardy garden plant, needing vernalization (a period of cold weather) in order to flower. As a garden plant, it will bloom in late January or early February at low altitudes.

The "hoop-petticoat daffodil". This earliest and tiniest dwarf gem with golden conical cup-flowers, and narrow pointed petals, thrives on the hottest of rockeries and will do well and even self-seed in moist turf rather like cylamen do.

It makes a striking specimen plant for an alpine display house or cool glasshouse. Blooms can last up to two to three weeks, adding cheerfulness to overcast winter days. It is suitable for naturalising in damp, rough grass that dries out in summer.

Dark Green

Instantly recognisable by it's bright yellow pendent flowers with sharply reflexed petals Narcissus Cyclamineus is equally at home in the garden or a pot.
It makes no offsets.
A moist, but very well-drained, sandy, leafy soil is best. Slightly acidic soils outside in the garden are better than either limey soils or pot cultivation.

My potting mix of 50% multipurpose and 50% sand would seem to be a contradiction to the heavier soils it inhabits in the wild but this mix produces excellent root growth.

High potash feeds make for reliable flowering, and it appreciates a dryish  rest throughout the summer. The small bulbs increase well although if seed raised, a 4/5 year wait is required until the first flowering.

Mid-Green

Sturdy species with erect mid-green leaves and neat golden yellow flowers on stiff stems in early spring. Good for naturalising.

This is the variety that grows wild in South Wales, and is described as having perfect proportions. It has an all yellow flower and is extremely hardy. It is ideal for planting into rough grass or meadows where it will spread when left undisturbed. The tidy appearance makes it equally good for beds and borders throughout the garden and could even be used in pots and windowboxes. Goes well with Athyrium filix-femina, Viola odorata and Helleborus argutfolius.

8-12 x 6 (20-30 x 15)

Narrow, erect, strap-shaped, channelled Dark Green leaves.

Solitary, scented flowers in late spring, with flat, pure white perianth segments and very small yellow cups edged with red-orange. Good for naturalising.

Narcissus poeticus var. physaloides JMH.8217 ~ The name – which loosely translates as Chinese lantern poet's narcissus – is not a botanical hoax, but rather a reference to this variety's intriguingly inflated buds. Of perhaps greater interest to gardeners, though, is that they open into one or sometimes two alabaster-white, 2-1/2-inch-wide flowers, bearing the small, red-rimmed corona and the intense fragrance for which the species is renowned. More compact (8 to 12 inches tall) than commonly cultivated forms, it shares their May bloom and their preference for moist soil and partial shade. Maritime/Mediterranean; S France. Zone 5.

I have a suspicion that any Mail-order Nursery in the world wishes to sell its plants. I have asked the trade for 12 years for use of their photos and succeeded with those detailed in my Copyright Permissions Page.

Currently from May 2017; I am requesting any mail-order nursery to upload their photos to Wikimedia Commons with Public Domain License, which I could then use to show its

  • flower,
  • foliage,
  • form and
  • seed/fruit

as I would believe that the respective photo was of the relevant plant named in its description, since that photo is from the grower of that plant.

This educational only website intends to describe and include photos for any cultivated plant or native wildlower plant, which is either grown and/or sold in the UK, with links to mail-order nursery in

who will sell the plant, plug or seed/bulb to the public either only in their country or other countries as well.

7. When I do not have my own or ones from mail-order nursery photos , then from March 2016, if you want to start from the uppermost design levels through to your choice of cultivated and wildflower plants to change your Plant Selection Process then use the following galleries:-

  • Create and input all plants known by Amateur Gardening inserted into their Sanders' Encyclopaedia from their edition published in 1960 (originally published by them in 1895) into these
    • Stage 1 - Garden Style Index Gallery,
      then
    • Stage 2 - Infill Plants Index Gallery being the only gallery from these 7 with photos (from Wikimedia Commons) ,
      then
    • Stage 3 - All Plants Index Gallery with each plant species in its own Plant Type Page followed by choice from Stage 4a, 4b, 4c and/or 4d REMEMBERING THE CONSTRAINTS ON THE SELECTION FROM THE CHOICES MADE IN STAGES 1 AND 2
    • Stage 4a - 12 Bloom Colours per Month Index Gallery,
    • Stage 4b - 12 Foliage Colours per Month Index Gallery with
    • Stage 4c - Cultivation, Position, Use Index Gallery and
    • Stage 4d - Shape, Form Index Gallery
    • Unfortunately, if you want to have 100's of choices on selection of plants from 1000's of 1200 pixels wide by up to 16,300 pixels in length webpages, which you can jump to from almost any of the pages in these 7 galleries above, you have to put up with those links to those choices being on
      • the left topic menu table,
      • the header of the middle data table and on
      • the page/index menu table on the right of every page of those galleries.

Functional combinations in the border from the International Flower Bulb Centre in Holland:-

"Here is a list of the perennials shown by research to be the best plants to accompany various flower bulbs. The flower bulbs were tested over a period of years in several perennial borders that had been established for at least three years.

In combination with hyacinths:

In combination with tulips:

In combination with narcissi:

For narcissi, the choice was difficult to make. The list contains only some of the perennials that are very suitable for combining with narcissi. In other words, narcissi can easily compete with perennials.

In combination with specialty bulbs:

It is worth remembering that especially with roses that the colour of the petals of the flower may change - The following photos are of Rosa 'Lincolnshire Poacher' which I took on the same day in R.V. Roger's Nursery Field:-

Form of Rose Bush

There are 720 roses in the Rose Galleries; many of which have the above series of pictures in their respective Rose Description Page.

So one might avoid the disappointment that the 2 elephants had when their trunks were entwined instead of them each carrying their trunk using their own trunk, and your disappointment of buying a rose to discover that the colour you bought it for is only the case when it has its juvenile flowers; if you look at all the photos of the roses in the respective Rose Description Page!!!!
