Each perfectly formed flower of 'Precocious' has white petals and a wide, frilled, peachy pink cup. When we first saw this Large-cupped Daffodil in field trials, the first words that came to mind were "Absolutely drop-dead gorgeous." Very showy. Midseason.
Large-cupped Daffodils are the workhorses of the Daffodil world. They're good for bedding, picking, naturalizing, forcing, and showing. This class includes the full color range: white, every shade of yellow, orange, and pink. They have one flower to a stem and a cup, which is not as long as their perianth segments but still greater than one-third the length of the segments. Large-cupped Daffodils always look fresh and festive.
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.
