Daffodils and Narcissi: How to grow them (and why!)

Daffodils are by far and away one of the most popular plants to grow in gardens as the spring sunshine rolls in. Chances are, there’s very little to be said about them that isn’t already well-known, but fans of this famous flower may be interested to learn about the daffodil's place in culture, as well as certain species of narcissi which may just catch your eye!

There’s so much to say on this species, it couldn’t all be fit in one place. If you’re interested in dwarf narcissi, you may want to look here.

 

Fun Facts

The Greek myth of Narcissus is fairly infamous: a conceited hunter is led to a pool of water, where he falls in love with his own reflection; staring at it for the rest of his life until the golden flower sprouted at the place of his death. However, it might not be that the flower is named after the mythical figure, but according to Roman author Pliny the Elder, named instead for its scent.

Unrelated to Greek mythology, the flowering of daffodils often coincides with Lent, giving them the nickname Lenten lilies; not only that, but it coincides with St David’s Day, the day of the patron saint of Wales- hence the reason it’s Wales’ national flower!

 

How to grow

Daffodils are very hardy and versatile flowers, such that advice for growing them is perhaps best prescribed on a case-by-case basis. Ostensibly, narcissi are best planted in full sunlight with well-drained soil. So long as you avoid shady, damp areas, there’s really no way you can go wrong with daffodils, whether you’re planting them in beds, borders or containers by themselves. Planting them in groups provides the best effect!

 

Species & Styles

Certain species of narcissi are specifically suited for indoor planting, such as the pristine-looking Geranium Narcissi (which even blooms with several flowers per stem) and the sunny Soleil D’Or. These flowers boast a unique and strong scent that is sure to make a delightful display wherever they’re placed!

Though the trumpet and outer petals are traditional for a daffodil, a more unique appearance can be found with double-blooming variants, such as Yellow Cheerfulness, a pale-petalled beauty with less of a central trumpet and more of a dense central cluster. A double-flowering daffodil is sure to draw attention wherever you plant it!

And of course, for those most interested in a flower’s height: Tahiti grows up to 45cm tall, and bears an unusual and rare bloom of bold yellow and orange. Unsurpassable is about as simple as you can get with a daffodil, but its bright yellow petals and trumpet are large, flawless in form and downright glowing with beauty. Large flowers such as these are best for borders, or in patio pots for those who want to highlight these fantastic flowers
