A white perianth with a soft pink trumpet that boasts a well-defined band of deeper pink at its rim.

Pink Daffodils have charming, soft hues that range from soft, pink to peach and salmon. There is even a hint of red in some. There is usually some variation in the colouring as the flowers as age.

Daffodils are definitely not prima donnas. They naturalise easily into any well drained soil and will tough out trying conditions with ease. It is this sunny disposition that is appealing to gardeners worldwide. Apart from a little water when planted and the occasional dose of fertiliser, they are virtually maintenance free. And if you plant them deeply enough they can be left undisturbed for years and deliver consistent flowering. We choose the best varieties for our Australian conditions so you are guaranteed success.

With all their shapes and sizes, Daffodils have seemingly endless possibilities in the garden.

Flowers mid to late season. 30-75cm H x 10-15cm W.

Daffodil and Jonquil Cultural Notes

Situation:
Daffodils and Jonquils are both very adaptable and can be grown in almost any garden situation. They can be left undisturbed for years and are useful for naturalising along driveways, in lawns or under trees. Choose a full sun, to light shade position or one beneath deciduous trees. Daffodils will flourish in any friable, well drained soil. Prepare the soil prior to planting by digging through an all purpose fertiliser. If you miss the window, don't worry, dig it through at the time of planting. They will not tolerate poorly drained soil. Raise beds to avoid water-logging. For best effect plant bulbs in groups.

Time of Planting::
Late March to May, planting time does not greatly influence flowering time, which is determined by individual varieties. Plant 12-15cm deep and 15cm apart. The smaller, Rockery type Daffodils should be planted about 8cm apart. Daffodils should be planted deep enough to remain cool during summer.
Cool Climates (Coastal Victoria, Tasmania) cover bulbs with 5-10 cm of soil. Warm Climates (Inland Victoria, Coastal NSW, SA, QLD), cover bulbs with 15-18 cm of soil. In light soils plant bulbs deeper than normal recommendations.
If you are leaving your Daffodils in the ground to naturalise, we recommend planting them on deeper side. Roughly to a depth three times the height of the bulb and slightly deeper in warmer climates. Also, plant them further apart than you normally would, as they will form natural clumps. By planting them further apart you reduce the rate of overcrowding and they won't have to be dug
and divided for three to five years. Daffodils grow 30-45cm H x 10-15cm W. Rockery Daffodils grow 15-30cm x 10cm.

General Care:
In most areas, natural rainfall is all that is required. In warmer areas, soil may need to be kept moist, to initiate growth in autumn, and to keep foliage green in late spring. A dry mulch or partial shade during summer is beneficial. Do not over-water bulbs in summer. Daffodils can be left in the ground for at least 3-5 years. Top dress at the emergence of foliage and immediately after flowering, then again when bulbs are at maximum growth for best blooms. This helps to promote bulb multiplication and size for the next season. Lifting and replanting is only necessary when bulbs have multiplied to become overcrowded and shy at flowering.

Digging & Storing:
Bulbs can be dug after the foliage has died right down. Replant immediately or store in a cool, airy position and replant in autumn. When dry, clean off soil, dried roots and loose husks. Allow clumps to break apart naturally. Damage to bulbs through breaking apart can encourage fungal attack.
