Daffodil Queensday

Daffodil Queensday

Another new Introduction, Double Narcissus Queensday is named for the beloved former Dutch Queen. Holland celebrates the Queen's Birthday (or Queen's Day) every year at the end of April. Since 2013 this tradition has been taken over by her son, the new King Willem Alexander, and is now called 'Kings Day'!

One of our most respected growers in the Netherlands is a specialist in crossing new Daffodil and Narcissus varieties especially for the Double Narcissus.

After many years of breeding, we can finally offer an improved Full Double Yellow Narcissus. The flower size of Narcissus Queensday is very impressive, stems are strong and this flower is sure to provide a very long show in the Spring.

The abundant double petals of this rich, golden narcissus are showy, but don’t detract from the traditional, star-like form of the blooms.

This is a 'narcissus with a difference' and is a great way to combine the classical with the unusual.

For optimal performance we ship top size bulbs 15/17 CM.

How-To-Guides

Narcissus Golden Ducat

Did you know that the Narcissus is the flower of March? Plant Narcissus bulbs in the fall (between September and the end of November) to have plenty of Narcissus flowers in the Spring. Other names for Narcissus include daffodil or jonquil. Narcissus is the more botanical, latin term for the flower. Narcissus bulbs also naturally repel squirrels and other rodents and are a good choice if you have had a problem with small creatures trying to take a bite out of your flower bulbs in the past!

How to Grow Narcissus Bulbs:

1. In the Fall, choose a spot that is mostly sunny for the majority of the day or has only light shade. Also make sure that the location has fairly good drainage and does not tend to get waterlogged.

2. Planting narcissus bulbs is fairly simple. Bulbs look much like a small onion, sometimes with a spike or point on one side and sometimes wiry roots growing out of the other side. Plant with the spike pointing up.

3. Follow the rule of thumb when planting bulbs and give the bulbs at least 2 times their height of soil above them. Narcissus like a deep planting in light soil. Dig a 6-7 inch hole, drop the bulb into it and cover with soil. 

4. Regarding the spacing between bulbs, if planting in beds, leave approx 5-6 inches between each bulb. If you are planting in containers, you can cluster them a little closer together. 

5. After planting, water well so that the soil above the bulbs settles.

6. Narcissus bulbs will flower in the spring. After the flowers die back in late spring or early summer, let the plant enjoy a drier, warmer rest period. After leaves die back, stop watering so that the bulb can rest.

7. In cooler zones, you can leave narcissus bulbs in the ground over winter so that they can receive their required period of winter cooling in order to flower the following Spring.
