More than a lagniappe, great fragrance in narcissus is something we all look forward to, expect, and depend on. Triandrus, jonquils, tazettas, and poeticus each have their own fragrance palettes, but fragrance can pop up anywhere in cultivars old and new.
A recent yellow and white triandrus with modulating colors on its way to the final chorus. Floriferous, scented, and substantial with lovely color. A reverse bi-color. From Chipper , inherits the lovely velvety substance. Named after the Beatles record album released in 1969.
A record album was a disc that stored music and aural data in wavy grooves embossed in vinyl. See also the Fab Four.
Bringing more rock and roll glamour to the modern New Zealand garden party, Abraxis is a scented, broad petaled, and wavy tazetta hybrid dressed in white and orange. Early to arrive to the fete. From Grand Monarch.
Just when I swore off of yellow orange cups along comes a colorful and deep cupped modern Jonquilla. Anfield is such a happy fellow I am committed to finding him good homes, perhaps adjacent to yours. Scented, two blooms to a scape, bulbs tend to make a plethora of scapes. From the likewise prolific Walter Blom. Ample stocks.
A singular jonquil that is perhaps the most beautiful of the division. Showy and colorful with great fragrance. Three flowers per scape if you are lucky, usually one or two. One to treasure.
April Tears is an Alec Gray cross of species N.jonquilla and N.triandrus. Seed parent to the terrific Tripartite. Similar to Hawera.
Vivid two toned yellow offspring of Avalanche. You will need both hands and some toes to count the number of blooms on each scape. An ideal example of what makes Tazettas such great flowers in the garden and in the vase. Needs southern exposure and winter protection in Zone 6. A creation of the late Bill 'the Bulb Baron' Welch.
Bebob is an Alec Gray miniature Jonquil with rich two-toned yellow color. Ma and Pa Bebop were both species, Daddy appears to be a poeticus. Confident like Mary Lou Williams and punchy like Dizzy Gillespie. Scented and petite.
A most demure all yellow bulbocodium from Mr. Blom, Capella is reserved in that most of the sexual parts are tucked neatly within the cup. Soft color, nowhere near brassy, chaste form. Scented and long lasting.
Very floriferous and very tall yellow and orange Tazetta. A perfect thing, likely a Poetaz , from Bill Pannill. Fantastic imposing plant, olé.
A very small, all golden yellow Bulbocodium from Walter Blom.
Towering over the tazetta bed every year is Chinita, an original poetaz with a very broad flowers and unusual clear primrose color. Pick it early to protect the cup from sunburn, the petals from blanching. Singular.
Clare is just the cutest little miniature jonquilla with a flat colorful cup. Perianth is a lighter yellow. An Alex Gray daffodil from mid century. Comparable to but distinct from Sun Disc and Bebop. Usually one flower per scape. ADS Classic.
Sired by Corofin, Clovelly Ayr is a bright and scented late poeticus from Ron Scamp.
A slim and colorful jonquil, you can never be too slender or too pink. Fragrant, floriferous and vigorous.
Cyclataz is the lovechild of a species CYCLAmineus and the TAZetta Grande Soleil d'Or . Vigorous, floriferous, wild in form, rich in color. Cyclataz does well in pot culture. ADS Historic. ADS Miniature. She is also the parent of three notable offsprin
Why does Flowmay drive us to such devotion? She is a tiny, miniature jonquilla, all white with an impossibly delicate pink rim on the cup. So improbable a heroine, so hopeful in a world of naysaying giants. Alec Gray named this for the missus. Tiny and rare. ADS Classic.
Twenty years ago Fragrant Rose was planted in great numbers in the States. Today she hangs on in the landscape trade, just. Because of her clean and upright form, along with a unique perfume, she is a pink cup with a difference. First rate cut flower.
Fragrant Spring is a luxurious double Dutch Double - She gets her powerful perfume from her mother and her double form from her father, Acropolis. We are listing it because we think it so belongs in the vase.
Well-named Frostbite is a spontaneous poeticus sport, extra white pointy petals intruding into the cup. Widely variable except that Frostbite retains an overall hexagonal corona shape, analogous to snowflakes. Scented Frostbite brings a lovely blast of cool to the late spring border when all of the other daffodils have melted. An intermediate, Frosty is attractive in a vase , for us blooms with Spanish Bluebells and Tulip Maureen. You will be pleasantly surprised by the the scent.
Gloriosus is a floriferous and beautiful very old tazetta with strong orange colored cups and a classic strong, sweet, fragrance. Pollen and seed fertile Glorious is also self fertile and “seeds like crazy”. A thing of joy and glory forced in a pot or as a cut flower. Needs a winter blanket in northern zones. Not to be confused with the tazetta cultivar “Glorious”.
You won’t get a good enough seat in the Dress Circle to see Golden Symphony: she is poised, petite, pendant and perfumed. Part jonquilla thus the fragrance. From master of pizzicato Walter Blom. We assume that you can put this on the bench as a miniature. Will sell with allegro con brio.
Cuddle up with the tall and part paperwhite tazetta Gracie Bear. Fragrant and floriferous from Bill Welch.
A highly floriferous cross from avalanche, by Bill Welch. Large and vigorous grower with large flowers and lots of them; we average 17 per scape. Hilary is very fragrant, an improved cultivar all around.
A highly unusual jonquil from Bill Welch. Really emulates all that is tazetta. Thought to have fertility both ways. Just a handful available.
A lot of the daffodils that we know as tazettas are tazettas that were crossed with Ornatus or another Poeticus. Tazettas were very popular in the Netherlands, the UK and the US in the 19th and early 20th century. They were widely grown in the States for the cut flower market. There was a lot of breeding to make the tazettas more cold-tolerant and more manageable. Laurens Koster is one of those poetaz daffodils who achieved a lot of fame. Still in the trade he has been largely replaced by n.Geranium. Equally fabulous in the garden, vase, pot or show bench, Laurens is showy, floriferous, frilly, colorful and fragrant. Tall and late blooming, a reliable grower and increaser in the south. A truly great cultivar. Historic.
L'Innocence ADS Historic.
