The distinct and quickly distinguishable form of the triandrus division : always multiple, pendant flowers on the scape, reflexed petals and somewhat monochromatic in color. White or yellow only please, or perhaps a mix of the two. Often fragrant, but always standing somewhere between at attention and at ease. Triandrus make good mates, crossing well with jonquilla, large cups, small cups, and of course other triandrus. Triandrus bring architecture and mass to the border, interest and detail to the bench and an elegant spirit of repose to the pot and vase. You get a lot of bloom power with this division, which tends to bloom on the later side.
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.
Where were you when you first saw Chipper? We were slack jawed in a greenhouse in North Holland when we were told “You can’t afford that”. Fast forward to today, and it turns out we can afford Chipper. A meteor shower of vertically pendant blooms with compound color leaving a trail of wavy and reflexed petals. One to start a collection with, one to end with. We hang out together a lot in the Spring.
A species jonquil and triandrus made their acquaintance in the garden of Grant Mitsch. Fairy Chimes was born. Floriferous: four to six blooms per scape. Fragrant. Deeper in color than N.hawera and more upright. Plant in the rockery with species tulips and muscari. ADS Classic.
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.
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.
