Daffodil ‘Changing Colours’ has a white perianth with large, flat crown that opens yellow, and later matures to cream with a pink edge. It is a very beautiful Daffodil that blooms mid season.
Frivolous flamboyance, Butterfly Daffodils are elaborate flowers where the corona, or trumpet is split, and forms a ruffle. For this reason they are also known as Split Corona or Split Cup Daffodils but we like the more romantic term, Butterfly Daffodils. There is no denying they look fabulous fluttering in the spring breeze.
Butterfly Daffodils are easy, they like the simple things in life; plenty of sun and a well drained soil.
Plant Butterfly Daffodil bulbs three times as deep as the bulb is high with the pointy end up. The depth will protect them from heat and soil erosion as well as providing strength for the stem. Space your Daffodils 10-20cm apart, more if you are leaving the bulbs in to naturalise.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem. Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed. The Daffodil foliage gathers energy and nutrients at this time for next year’s blooms. Keep the plants relatively moist during this time, and add a little general purpose fertiliser. Daffodils like Potash and slow release fertiliser brands which are low in nitrogen (this means more flowers and less foliage). They are not heavy feeders.
