Double Down on The Works Southern Style, Narcissus for Naturalizing
Bulbs are shipped at the correct time for planting in the fall.
Our Daffodil Mixture for naturalizing is called The Works because that's what it is. Many of the Narcissus that grow so brilliantly in the North fail to thrive in the heat of the South, but that is no reason to be without Daffodils. Tazetta, Jonquilla, and other Narcissus strains make reliable and long-lived perennials even in Zone 8, and the species forms have naturalized throughout the region. The Works Southern Style is made up from the modern cousins of these old-timers and it performs beautifully.
All they require is reasonable drainage and at least 6 hours of sun a day in spring to settle in as cheerful and permanent neighbors. Of course, Daffodils are also immune to pests and predators, including voles and deer. They ALWAYS bloom.
The Works is bought far in advance on contract and we do what we can to control cost factors like currency arbitrage and freight rates. At the suggestion of our supplier, we have this year conjured up another way to save you money. His analysis indicated that we could mix, grade, pack, and ship 200 of the Works for significantly less than it costs to deliver two separate orders of 100. We call it "Double Down," an expression from poker in which the player divides a pair of identical cards so as to play two hands at the same time. There is no magic to it, and we supply the same top-quality bulbs.
