Also known as 'Plenus', 'Rip van Winkle' is an heirloom Double dating before 1884. Its ancestors may well have been among the naturalized Daffodils that inspired William Wordsworth to pen his famous words. The blooms consist of whorls of narrow, pale greenish yellow petals, some with a slight twist. Early.
Double Daffodils have a central cluster of petals and are almost roselike in form. Doubles are good for showing, bedding, and picking.
Large, bright Narcissus blooms are for many gardeners the first visible signs of spring. These vigorous, long-lived bulbs thrive joyously in sunny, well-drained places, are shunned by hungry deer and voles, and will thrive and multiply with little care on your part, creating a glorious landscape and a horticultural legacy.
