A New Zealand bred daffodil that holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit. Once established the bulbs will produce numerous stems with up to five flowers on each. The canary yellow petals are swept back behind a wide, open cup that is slightly softer in colour. Daffodil ‘Hawera’ has a sweet fragrance and flowers mid to late season.
‘Hawera’ is in the Tiandrus group of daffodils which are sometimes referred to as ‘Angel’s Tears’. They produce up to 3 flowers on a stem, have swept back or flared petals and bell shaped coronas. We think they have great refined beauty.
These petite blooms are small in size but big on impact. They are perfect for small gardens, pots, lawn plantings or the front of beds.
Miniature Daffodils are tough, hardy and simple to grow. These superb daffodils always attract attention and each bulb produces more than one flower. So why not plant as many as space permits!
Plant Miniature 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, the end range is if you are leaving the bulbs in the ground to naturalise - that way they have room to multiply and you will have longer before you have to lift and divide them.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem (this will focus the growth on the bulb rather than seed production). Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed. The daffodil bulb uses the leaves to gather energy and nutrients for next year’s blooms. Keep them 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 leaves) but they are not heavy feeders so a little goes a long way.
