What: Narcissus “February Gold,” also known as February gold miniature daffodil.
Nothing trumpets the arrival of spring like the early blooming miniature daffodils. Narcissus “February Gold” positively glows in the spring garden. Its 3-inch golden yellow flowers nod atop a sturdy, 12-inch stem in the awakening boarder. Planting “February Gold” bulbs in groups makes for a natural look in the landscape. Hostas and deciduous ornamental grasses are a good combination because they will cover/disguise the foliage of the narcissus as it dies back by early June.
Size: This minature daffodil grows to be 1 foot tall and 1 foot wide.
Where: Narcissus grows best in full sun, although light shade is acceptable. Plant the bulbs in well-drained soil, although they will tolerate sand and clay.
Water: Once established, narcissus is drought-tolerant.
