Why do daffodils have a cup? Because they are pollen protectors – rain water will kill any pollen it touches – daffodils long ago evolved to tuck their stamens safely in their downward hanging cups. Centuries of daffodil breeding has conspired to breed upward facing blooms for the landscape and showier flowers.
Triandrus daffodils prefer to stick to the protective protocol and remain pendant.
Ice Chimes is a truly beautiful flower, small in size yet oversized in color, form and contrasts. More novelty from Grant Mitsch. Rare and limited.
