Glittering white petals with a small, neat cup. The cup is rich yellow with an almost red band. The flowers have a nice, earthy clove like fragrance.
One of the best, Pheasant Eye Daffodil ‘Actaea’ flowers early, stretching up to 9cm and is wonderful in vases. It holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, so you know it can be relied upon.
Pheasant Eye Daffodils are princely blooms. They are really easy care and produce breathtaking flowers that last an age.
Great in the garden, these Daffodils are easy to grow and can be left in the ground to naturalise and their natural beauty never goes out of style. Pheasant Eye Daffodils like plenty of sun and a well drained soil.
Plant Pheasant Eye Daffodils 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.
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. 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 won’t need much as they are not heavy feeders.
This is our recommendation for the best display, keeping in mind bulbs look best when planted nice and close together.
14cm/6” = 3 bulbs
