Very pale, almost white petals hints of apricot. The large ruffled, corona is more deeply coloured. Blooms open mid season.

Pink Daffodils are highly decorative, with broad, pale petals and eye catching coronas in shades from salmon to red. These showy Daffodils are stars in the garden. Daffodil breeders aim to get as close to red as possible in much of their breeding. So along the way there is created a spectacular array of pink shades. In many cases the colour fades or increases as the blooms mature. The best colour is achieved with shelter from the hot afternoon sun.

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 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, closer for a more dramatic display.
Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem. Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed. This is the time when the Daffodil foliage is 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 don’t need much as they are not heavy feeders.
