The ivory-white petals are teamed with large cups that turn from muted yellow to apricot-pink as they age. Daffodil ‘Salome’ flowers mid to late season and has a soft fragrance.
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, 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.
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.
