n. flower carpet

This is among the largest and one of the best Trumpet Daffodils for the south. True stock has become very rare and may not be available every year. Highly recommended in the Florida Daffodil Book. A sport of the old King Alfred. One of the best for Louisiana and most of the south. Rot resistant and multiplies. Our stock is limited. I urge you to order early. More photo's in the gallery.

N. Fortune                                            2Y-O             1917 Historic

n. fortune

One of the most recommended daffodils for the south. Yellow petals with a long orange cup. Growing in Florida, Texas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Listed as one of the best varieties of the large cupped type in the 1955 LSU daffodil trial. I find these at older homes in town growing by the hundreds. Great for the heirloom planting or large drifts. I have them growing in the lawn.

N. Geranium                                         8W-O            1930 Historic

n.geranium 

Stunning large quarter size white blooms with bright orange cups in clusters. The first time I saw these in large drifts at the old mansion site they were in full bloom. They were near old oaks on a hill. The fragrance was wonderful. They were stunning. This daffodil was only for the wealthy back then. I have them planted in the lawn by the house. Sorry. No mansion on my place and they are growing just fine.

N. Gigantic Star                                     2Y-Y             1960

 

n. gigantic star 
A very large flower. Tall and showy. Tough enough to make it in Florida and Texas. Lighter yellow petals with a darker yellow cup. You can easily see these blooming across the yard so show them off in the front yard. My blooms came through bad weather perfect. The blooms last a long time even in the heat. Multiplies.

N. Golden Dawn                                     8Y-O            1958

n. golden dawn
A tall fragrant tazetta. Overlapping yellow petals with orange cup. Another that made it in Florida and Texas. I saw a mass planting of these in Texas and they were lovely shining in the sun. The fragrance was heavenly. Very showy and a proven winner for the south. Good cut flower. Can grow tall. Multiplies.

N. Hawera                                   5Y-Y                       1927 Historic

N. Hawera

Pale yellow petals swept back hang like jewels. One of the few miniatures that thrive, even in the coastal south. In partial shade it can grow 14" tall for a very showy clump. Very elegant with 3 to 5 blooms per stem. The sweet fragrance and narrow foliage are from the jonquil parent. This also explains why this little daffodil grows so well even in Florida. Recommended in 'Garden Bulbs For The South' and 'Daffodils in Florida'. Multiplies into large clumps. Fragrant. Full sun or partial shade.

N. Monal                                     2Y-R                       1976

N. Monal 

This one has been taking the south by storm. A large flower with yellow petals. The cup is more orange than red here in the south. It has gotten great reviews from Florida to Texas. Needs good drainage. A very good choice for the front of the house. Show off this one. Full sun or partial shade. Multiplies.

N. Mount Hood                             1W-W                     1938 Historic

N. Mounthood 

A tried and true large white trumpet for the south. Grows in Florida and Texas. Flower opens with white petals and a pale yellow trumpet that quickly turns white. This will always be my Granny's white daffodil growing two feet wide along her chain link fence in El Dorado, Arkansas. She loved them.

Mrs. R.O. Backhouse                    2W-P                       Pre 1921 Historic

Mrs R O Backhouse 
A rare historic pink daffodil that has done very well for us in north Louisiana and has done well in Florida. This one even did well in the daffodil study conducted in 1955 by Louisiana State University. White petals with a trumpet that starts more apricot then turns more pink. It blooms a little later than some but always puts on elegant show. Yes, this one is elegant. We even have it growing in the lawn. I have only found Mrs. R.O. Backhouse at historic home sites of the very wealthy.

N. Pipit                                                7YYW-W         1963

N. Pipit 
A great choice for something different. A reverse bicolor that will grow in the south. Pale yellow petals with white at the base. The cup changes from light yellow to white. A very unusual color for us. Pipit will multiply into large showy clumps. It is growing in Florida and Texas so it can take the heat. Prefers a little shade. More photos in the Gallery. A very tough child of jonquila.
