Narcissus Topolino

(1 W-Y) Named the 2014 Spring Flower of the Year, dainty Topolino (meaning little mouse in Italian) is sturdy, beautiful and deliciously fragrant. This early flowering award-winner opens with a 2½" creamy-yellow perianth that matures to white with a long, frilled, cylindrical, bright yellow cup. (While it is classified a Trumpet Daffodil, we've also included it among the Cyclamineus due to its growing habit.) One of our clients told us that the fragrance reminds her of the combination of chocolate and vanilla. Narcissus Class: Trumpet Daffodil (Royal Horticultural Society Division 1). Bulb size: 10/12 cm. April. HZ: 4-8. 8" to 10".

Narcissi are The Art & Soul of Spring.

  • Information
  • Trumpet Daffodils
    The most well-known group of Narcissi, Trumpet Daffodils naturalize extremely well and have a long blooming season with large, bold flowers. To classify as a Trumpet, their flowers must have a trumpet (also known as the cup or the corona) as long as, or longer than, their petals (perianth). They yield one flower per stem. 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. 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 a horticultural zone 5: April. Plant 6" to 8" deep and 6" apart. Horticultural zones 3-7. Height: 18" to 20", depending upon variety. Narcissus classification: Royal Horticultural Society Division 1.
