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 from soft pink to peach. There is even a hint of red in some. Superb.

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, Daffodils are virtually maintenance free. If you plant them deeply enough they can be left undisturbed for years and still 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. 30-70cm H x 10-15cm W.

Daffodils & Jonquils (Narcissus) Cultural Notes

Situation:
Daffodils and Jonquils are very adaptable and can be grown in almost any garden situation. They can be left undisturbed for years and are useful for naturalising 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 organic fertiliser. If you miss the window, don't worry; add it to the top of the soil after plating. They will not tolerate poorly drained soil. Raise beds to avoid water-logging. For best effect plant Daffodil 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 10-15cm apart. The smaller, Rockery type Daffodils, and Hoop Petticoats should be planted around 8cm apart. Plant them slightly 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 should be planted deep enough to remain cool during summer. Cool Climates (Coastal Victoria, Tasmania) cover bulbs with 5-10 cm of soil (twice the height of the bulb). Warm Climates (Inland Victoria, Coastal NSW, SA, QLD,WA), cover bulbs with 15-18 cm of soil (three times the height of the bulb). In light soils plant bulbs deeper than normal recommendations (three to four times the bulb height).
Daffodils grow 30-75cm H x 10-15cm W. Rockery Daffodils grow 15-30cm H x 10cm W. Hoop Petticoat grows 10-20cm H x 5-10cm W.

General Care:
In most areas, natural rainfall is enough to keep Daffodils growing happily. They should be kept just moist during their growth. During summer dormancy, a dry mulch or partial shade during summer is beneficial, to stop them getting too hot, it is also important not over-water.
When left in the ground to naturalise, it is a good idea to top dress the soil at the emergence of foliage and again, immediately when they are flowering to aid maximum growth and best blooms. Lifting and replanting is only necessary when bulbs have multiplied to become overcrowded and shy to flower which takes around 3-5 years.

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 as you might damage the bulbs by breaking them apart which may encourage fungal attack.
