  • Information

  • A vigorous, multi-flowering strain with several stems per bulb, fragrant Tazetta Narcissi create lush, full displays with two to twenty flowers with spreading petals per stout stem. A bit tender, Tazettas are ideal for southern climates. They would benefit from a 2" layer of mulch in northern climates where they may be marginally hardy. Tazetta Narcissi are perfect candidates for forcing over the winter. They are also 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. 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. Bulb size: DNII. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: April. Plant 6" to 8" deep and 6" apart. Horticultural zones 5-9. Height: 7" to 18" depending upon the variety. Narcissus classification: Royal Horticultural Society Division 8.
