Bright white petals surround an open, ribbed cup. The cup is green to yellow with a wide red band. The flowers have an earthy, clove like fragrance. Flowers mid to late season.
Great in the garden, these Daffodils are easy to grow and can be left in the ground to naturalise. Their natural beauty never goes out of style. Pheasant Eye Daffodils like plenty of sun and a well drained soil.
It is a good idea to prepare your soil by digging through some well rotted manure a few weeks prior to planting your Pheasant Eye Daffodils. This will improve drainage and add nutrients to the soil, giving your plants a good start.
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. Space 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 Pheasant Eye Daffodils foliage to remain until it has yellowed. The foliage gathers energy and nutrients at this time for next year's blooms. Keep relatively moist during this time and add a little general purpose fertiliser. Daffodils like Potash and slow release brands which are low in nitrogen (more flowers – less foliage).
