Daffodil Tazetta Essentials™ Blend

Tazetta daffodils make lots of flowers and lots of fragrance. A bulb can produce multiple stems and each stem can carry 10 small flowers or more, filling the air with a powerful sweet scent. This blend is composed of three complementary varieties that bloom in succession—from early to midseason. Excellent for cutting: You can harvest one bouquet after another. Introduced 2015
Deer and Rodent Proof

Note: These daffodils are especially well suited to growing conditions in the South and on the West Coast. They may not overwinter in cold climates.

Bloom Time Early to Mid
Bloom times are relative within the spring bulb season, which varies from place to place and year to year. They are intended to help you plan a sequence of bloom from Very Early season to Very Late season. About two weeks separate Early from Mid and Mid from Late. The start and duration of bloom is heavily dependent on the weather. Warm temperatures speed up growth and flowering; cold temperatures slow them down.

Planting Instructions

To get the most from daffodils, follow these 3 basic rules:

  1. Plant them where they will get at least 6 hours of direct sunlight, even after they have finished flowering and the trees have leafed out. Daffodils need lots of sun after they bloom to produce next year’s flowers.
  2. Plant them in soil that drains well. Avoid areas where water stands after a rain storm.
  3. After daffodils flower, wait at least 8 weeks — until the leaves turn yellow — before cutting them. Never tie or braid daffodil foliage. This year’s leaves = next year’s flowers.

If you want to naturalize daffodils (i.e., plant them so that they look as though they have sprung up on their own), we suggest that you set them out in drifts (not in blocks or lines) and that you space the bulbs farther apart than recommended on the bag label (to allow room for the clumps to increase in size). If you want to naturalize daffodils in a grassy area, you must wait to mow until their foliage has turned yellow, which means allowing the grass to grow very tall.

Prechilling: For Warm Southern Climates

For bulbs that are to be planted in mild-winter climates, it is possible to supplement winter cold by placing the bulbs in a refrigerator for 6–12 weeks before planting.

Recommendations for the South

Many spring-flowering bulbs struggle in warm southern climates. Some do fine despite the lack of prolonged winter cold. Others do reasonably well if prechilled before planting.
