Description

Trumpet Daffodil is a perennial bulbous herb that grows up to 1 1⁄2' tall. This plant blooms in early spring. Single flowers have a corona tube as long as or longer than petal length, a distinguishing feature of this plant. This plant has a spreading habit and is good for naturalizing. This plant is tolerant of heat and drought. It is intolerant of extremely wet conditions. It benefits from the addition of bone meal or superphosphate added to the planting hole. Plant 6 weeks before the first freeze, 4-5" below the soil surface. Cut foliage back after it has browned naturally. This plant is pest and disease resistant due to poisonous alkaloids content.
