An ostentatious bloomer with a bright white perianth to 9cm eclipsed by the split, peach pink, ruffled cup that sits back on the petals.
Daffodil ‘Shrike’ flowers mid to late season. It holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit so you know it has been put through its paces and will grow with vigour.
I want to say it is quite ‘shriking’ ... a Shrike is a beautiful, carnivorous/predatory bird known for their ferocity, taking on rodents their same size, then storing their bodies impaled on barbed wire or branches. We aren’t sure if the breeder had their beauty or their fierceness in mind when they named this daffodil.
Daffodil breeders aim to get as close to red as possible in much of their breeding, and along the way they create a spectacular array of pink shades which gardeners adore. You will get the best colour from your flowers with protection from the hot afternoon sun, or in a filtered light position.
Daffodils are easy and they like the simple things in life; plenty of sun and a well drained soil.
Plant 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 10cm or apart. You can allow more space if you are leaving the bulbs in to naturalise. Planting them closer will give a more dramatic display. We like to plant ours three to a hole to create instant effects.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem (this stops the plant focusing on seed production and will increase your bulb).
Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed as this is when the bulbs are gathering energy and nutrients 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), and you won’t need much as they are not heavy feeders.

Daffodil ‘Shrike’ is Division 11a, Split-Cupped Collar.
