Wild Daffodil

Narcissus pseudonarcissus

Details:

The Wild Daffodil, also known in times past as the Lent Lily, is more delicate and unassuming than many hybrids. It seems to have been in decline since the 1930s, although why no-one seems sure. Like the Common Bluebell, as a woodland plant they require shade in the summer. Daffodils don't seem to be much visited by honey bees, but are more usually pollinated by bumblebees. All parts of the daffodil are poisonous. Like all our native bulbs, our wild daffodils are lifted to order at a remote woodland nursery in Wales. Daffodils should be planted at 12 bulbs per square metre. We offer packages of 50, 100 and 500 wild daffodil bulbs, available from August to October. Flowers: March

Wild Daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus)

The Wild Daffodil, also known in times past as the Lent Lily, is more delicate and unassuming than many hybrids. This is the plant that Wordsworth knew. It's a relatively short plant, growing to a foot at most, and its flower has pale yellow petals and a deeper yellow corona.


It seems to have been in decline since the 1930s, although why no-one seems sure. Like the Common Bluebell, as a woodland plant they require shade in the summer, and naturalise freely in damp spots. Daffodils don't seem to be much visited by honey bees when they flower in early spring, but are more usually pollinated by early bumblebees. All parts of the daffodil are poisonous.


Bulbs For Sale

Like all our native bulbs, our wild daffodils are lifted to order at a remote woodland nursery in Wales. Daffodils should be planted at 12 bulbs per square metre, scattered naturally. The bulbs are relatively small and easy to plant, to a depth of twice the size of the bulb. If the ground is dry and hard give it a good water before you start.
