Daffodil Scilly Daffs™ Blend

The Isles of Scilly (pronounced “silly”) are a cluster of small islands off the southwestern tip of England where daffodils have been grown commercially for at least 100 years. Because the climate on the islands is exceptionally mild, the growers there have long specialized in tazetta daffodils, which are prized for their fragrance but do not fare well where winters are severe.

Colorblends, in cooperation with one of the largest growers on the islands, has assembled a mixture of 10-15 Scilly tazettas, both single and double, for a long run of spring bloom. Many are heirlooms (the oldest variety dates to the 18th century). All carry multiple flowers per stem and produce a powerful sweet scent that makes them ideal for cutting. A bouquet of these beauties will easily perfume a room. Colorblends exclusive. Introduced 2020

Please take note of the USDA Zone rating for these daffodils. They are suited to the South, coastal California, and the Pacific Northwest. They will not do well in cold-winter 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.

Tulips in the Landscape

Tulips are among the most iconic of flowers. Everyone recognizes the classic goblet shape. Artists and graphic designers make liberal use of it—abstract, literal and romanticized in drawings, paintings, wallpaper patterns and advertisements.
