The gleaming white petals and tiny, red-rimmed yellow cup of 'Ornatus' reveal its Poeticus ancestry. If you love the spicy fragrance and delicate look of the Pheasant's Eye Daffodil, but want earlier blooms, grow this. Heirloom, 1870. Blooms in midseason.
Daffodils are easy to grow and largely immune to voles and deer. Give these bulbs well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. Once bloom is complete, there is no need to remove spent blossoms, but do allow the leaves to remain in place until they yellow (6–8 weeks). This ensures the following year's display.
