Silver white, reflexed petals with a cute, cream cup. With vibrant, green foliage and strong stems packed with fragrant blooms daffodil ‘Silver Chimes’ is a winner. Flowers open late season in groups of up to ten.
This is a virus free form. Newly imported from the UK, these aren’t the sickly looking ‘Silver Chimes’ you may be used to seeing, these are outstanding. Great in warm climates.
Also known as Jonquils or Jonquil type daffodils, Scented Daffodil flowers `cluster` together along the stems forming an impressive display. These blooms have a strong, sweet fragrance that carries beautifully throughout the garden. A top choice for beginners and warmer climates, Scented Daffodils are pretty indestructible.
Scented Daffodils are easy, they like the simple things in life; plenty of sun and a well drained soil. It is this sunny disposition that is appealing to gardeners worldwide. We choose the best varieties for our Australian conditions so you are guaranteed success.
Plant Scented 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 Scented 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 bulbs use the foliage to gather energy and nutrients at this time for next year’s blooms. Keep the plants relatively moist during this time, and add a little high potash 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.
