Description

Narcissi Division 6 Cyclamineus Snipe has well reflexed, large golden yellow flowers with a bright orange red trumpet. We really like this variety as the trumpets start of a lemon yellow and quickly turn to a gorgeous deep orange. Narcissi of garden origin with the characteristics of N. cyclamineus predominant. Some of the earliest daffodils to flower are in this group. They all have the recurving flowers of N. cyclamineus.

Cyclamineus narcissi such as Narcissi Division 6 Cyclamineus Snipe are a really popular group to be used in pots, containers and rockeries as well as borders in the garden. Suitable to be planted in many varied soil types as long as they are free draining, in heavier soils add grit or well rotted organic matter to help with drainage. In lighter soils such as sand add humus matter which will help to retain nutrients and water. Cultivate the soils to a depth of 15-20cms and plant bulbs 10cms deep and 10cms apart. When planting in containers the distance apart can be reduced to 5cms if required. Protect the early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering to get the best from them. Remember to feed the bulbs during the leaf and flower stage with bone meal, tomato feed or similar.

Work well in planting schemes with other dwarf bulbs such as anemones, and dwarf iris,

This is a late season daffodil that will naturalise very well in the garden and can be left undisturbed for many years.
