Narcissus Flower Surprise

(4 W-P) A magnificent cross of Pink Paradise and Delnashaugh by Dutchman Henk Wijnhout, Flower Surprise is about 5" across with an opulent, triple-layered champagne-apricot perianth chock-full of intricate waves of buttery apricot-pink petaloid segments. It is so fluffy and full that at first glance, it is hard to believe it is a Narcissus. Perhaps it should be the founder of a new class of Triple Narcissi. As with all Pink Narcissi, it benefits from filtered sunlight so that it may develop its best pink coloration. Limited supply. Narcissus Class: Double (Royal Horticultural Society Division 4). Bulb size: 14/16 cm. April/May. HZ: 3-8. 14" to 16".

Narcissi are The Art & Soul of Spring.

  • Information
  • Double Narcissi
    Resembling Camellias and small Peonies, flamboyant Double Narcissi yield one or more flowers per stem. Each flower has multiple layers of petals or crowns, or both. With many of these showy varieties boasting a sweet fragrance, Double Narcissi are great for both the garden and cut flower arrangements. You may want to offer these flamboyant gems a bit of protection from the wind. After it rains, the abundant flower surface can weigh the flowers down a bit. They are much loved for the fact that deer and rodents do not like to eat them!

    All Narcissi tolerate a wide range of sunlight from full sun to semi-shade. Varieties with pink cups should be grown in areas of filtered sunlight. Narcissi prefer well-draining soil, hate to get wet feet and love to be fed with a 4-10-6 or 5-10-5 granular organic flower bulb fertilizer three times a year. Allow the foliage to thrive and die back naturally without braiding or premature removal. DNII bulb size: 14/16 cm unless otherwise noted. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: April/May. Plant 6" to 8" deep and 6" apart. Horticultural zones 3-8. Height: 14" to 18", depending upon variety. Narcissus classification: Royal Horticultural Society Division 4.
