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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
An antique pink cup that is lovely in the border, pot and bench. Deeply lobed and frilled cup funnels a sweet perfume that differentiates this happy flower. Color can be variable depending on our spring weather. Smelligant.A perennial favorite.
