A daffodil sure to inspire poets! One of the latest daffodils to bloom, this unique small-cupped variety appears by the dozens in mid to late spring upon 13-15" stems. Pristine white petals surround a small, yellow cup that is offset by a green throat and an edging of orange-red. Thanks to a very fine flower form and soft, romantic fragrance, this pretty daffodil is destined to become a garden favorite. Plus, it naturalizes like a dream, increasing in beauty, bloom and vigor year after year. Leave foliage to die back on its own before removing. Deer resistant. Zones 3-8. Narcissus actaea 'Poet's'
With so many different varieties available, the only trouble daffodil lovers have is choosing their favorite one. From ivory white to classic yellow and even rich pink, each and every daffodil boasts its own unique color and beauty for you to enjoy in the sunny springtime landscape. You'll find many that emit a lovely fragrance as well. Long lasting in the garden and vase, daffodils are often the first blooms to appear early in the season. They are easy to grow, require little to no maintenance, and most are deer resistant, too.
