What makes the trumpet daffodil unlike its cousins (as if you couldn’t guess) is its clearly trumpet-like shape. As ‘flower bulb of the year for 2014’, everyone can now get to know the various types, colors and scents of trumpet daffodils - and you can pick from so many kinds!
Yellow and white
Good old reliables include ‘Dutch Master’, ‘Mount Hood’ and ‘Marieke’ - familiar cultivars from the previous century. ‘Mount Hood’ produces white flowers.
In the varieties sporting two colors, the trumpet has one color and the petals another. The yellow trumpet and creamy white petals of ‘Bravoure’ and ‘Topolino’ set these cultivars apart.
Trumpet Daffodils flower year after year 1 of the daffodil’s strong points is that this spring-flowering bulb can be left undisturbed in the soil and produce more and more flowers year after year. This makes daffodils perfect for naturalizing - as long as they are planted in a sunny location. After flowering, leave the foliage attached to the bulb for as long as possible, provide dried cow manure or compost in the autumn, and you will have flowers every spring for the next 5 to 6 years.
Daffodils can also be planted in the grass on the condition that mowing is not done until the plants have died back. This means either delaying the first mowing until the foliage of the daffodils has withered back or mowing only the grass between the daffodils until then. The rule of thumb for planting is to plant the bulbs twice as deep as the bulb is tall.
