Double Daffodils

    A double daffodil is a strange and wonderful thing. The extra petals completely transform the familiar cup-and-saucer shape of the flower. Sometimes the doubling is found only in the center. In other cases, petals seem to be emerging all over the place, causing the uninformed visitor to do a double take: Roses in early spring?

    Many double daffodils combine extra petals with petal-like (petaloid, to use the technical term) pieces in a second color. These are the remnants of what was once the cup. They serve as interesting and attractive accents to the explosion of petals pushing up, through and around them.

    Double daffodils make effective landscape plants. The fullness and unusual construction of the flowers are hard to miss. We would argue that enough should be planted so that some can be cut without marring the display. For it’s at close range that you can really appreciate their amazing architecture.
