Butterfly Daffodil ‘Chanterelle’ is tall with cream to pale yellow petals with a hint of green. The broad, split cup is lemon yellow and layers nicely over the petals, almost overlapping them. The flowers open mid season and hold their colour well.

Butterfly Daffodils are a spring essential, their totally charming, frilled flowers have a lot to offer. Their full, elaborate form has a split corona or trumpet that forms a handsome ruffle. They are also known as Split Corona or Split Cup Daffodils but we like the more romantic term, Butterfly Daffodils, and there is no denying they look fabulous fluttering in the spring breeze.

Butterfly Daffodils are easy, they like the simple things in life; plenty of sun and a well drained soil.

Plant Butterfly 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.
