Double Daffodils

Double Daffodils


Millthorpe Plant Centre – 10 Narcissus Replete – Pink Double Daffodil – Size 12/14 – Spring flowering bulb – FREE DELIVERY!!!

The term double means that extra petals are present. Sometimes a daffodil will have a doubled trumpet; sometimes it will have doubled petals (i.e. perianth segments), and sometimes doubles of both. As a result, Double Daffodils may resemble carnations or even gardenias rather than daffodils. Needless to say, this can look  impressive.

As if this were not enough, some Double Daffodils are floriferous (i.e. have more than one blossom per stem). As well, many have wonderful fragrances. Double Daffodils are widely available commercially.
