Split-Corona Daffodils



The blossoms in this division have a very unusual form. The term corona in the title refers to the cup (or trumpet) of the daffodil.

The cup is split for at least one-half its length, creating an open, up-facing blossom, instead of the typical trumpet. As a result, many of the flowers look more like a Hibiscus than they do a daffodil.

Overall these are some of the showiest daffodils ever, especially for mass plantings. They are excellent as cut flowers – always a highlight in flower arrangements.

Flowering time: mid spring
Plant height: 12 – 18″ (30 – 46 cm)
Minimum planting depth: 5″ (12 cm)
Hardiness zones: suitable for zones 3 – 8
Colours: white, yellow, pink, and orange (may have touches of green)
Form of CollarDaffodils: the corona (trumpet) segments are opposite the petal segments
the corona segments are usually in two whorls of three
Form of PapillonDaffodils: the corona (trumpet) segments alternate with the petal segments
the corona segments are usually in a single whorl of six.
(Note: papillon means “butterfly” in French)
Alternate names: Butterfly Narcissi, Split-Cup Narcissi
Notes: outstanding as cut flowers; good for beds and borders
Examples of Collar varieties: Cassata (lemon yellow and white), Colblanc* (white with green eye), Mondragon* (golden yellow and tangerine orange), Orangery (white and pale tangerine), Palmares (white and salmon pink), Rosado (white and peach), Tripartite* (3 or 4 lemon yellow flowers)
Examples of Papillon varieties: Broadway Star (white and orange), Lemon Beauty (white with rays of yellow), Papillon Blanc (overlapping white petals with green and yellow cup), Marie José(yellow flecked orange with white margins), Sorbet (ivory with yellow-orange), Space Shuttle (white with streaks of orange and yellow)

Small-Cupped Daffodils


GARTHWAITE NURSERIES 25Kg Edward Buxton Small-Cupped Daffodil/Narcissus Bulbs Yellow/Orange Perennial

As the name implies, these daffodils have cups (i.e. trumpets) that are relatively small and shallow. Specifically, Short Cup Daffodils are defined as having a cup whose length is equal to or less than one third the height of the surrounding petals.

This group of daffodils is noted for their brilliant colours: the cups can be snow white, golden yellow, lime green, salmon, coral, orange, or vermillion red. They are a wonderful addition to any cut flower arrangement.

Short Cup Daffodils are also very good naturalizers; in other words, they will come back year after year and gradually multiply.

Short Cup Daffodils are sometimes commercially not as widely available as other varieties of daffodils.

Flowering time: early spring
Plant height: 12 – 18″ (30 – 46 cm)
Minimum planting depth: 6″ (15 cm)
Hardiness zones: suitable for zones 3 – 9
Colours: white, yellow or orange petals with white, yellow, green, salmon, coral, orange, or red cup; may have a green eye and rims in red or yellow
Shape/form: corona (cup) not more than one third the height of the perianth segments (petals)
only one flower to a stem
Alternate names: Small Cup Daffodils
Notes: excellent as cut flowers; good for beds and borders
Example varieties: Barrett Browning (white with orange-red cup), Birma (yellow with red cup), Dreamlight (white with white cup, red center and green eye), Edna Earle* (white with yellow and dark orange cup), Merlin* (white with yellow cup, red rim), Mint Julep (pale yellow with yellow cup, green eye), Polar Ice (white), Queen of the North (white with pale yellow cup), Sabine Hay (coppery orange with red cup), Seagull (white with yellow cup and orange rim)Sinopel* (white with lime green cup, yellow rim)

Poeticus Daffodils


GARTHWAITE NURSERIES : – 20 Pheasant Eye Poeticus Daffodil/Narcissus Bulbs (Extremely Fragrant) Hardy Late Spring Garden Perennial

All of the daffodils in this division have large white petals with small, dainty cups in contrasting colours (such as golden yellow or lime green).

They all naturalize beautifully (naturalize = come back year after year and slowly multiply). Some Poeticus Daffodils are known to have been growing in the same garden, with very little care, for generations!

When planting Poeticus bulbs, take advantage of the fact that they finish off the Narcissi flowering season. They work well when planted along side other late blooming bulbs, such as Lily-flowering Tulips, Fringed Tulips, or Double Late Tulips.

Most varieties of Poeticus Daffodils have a wonderful spicy fragrance.

Flowering time: late spring: Poeticus Daffodils are noted for being the last narcissi to flower
Plant height: 12 – 16″ (30 – 40 cm)
Minimum planting depth: 6″ (15 cm)
Hardiness zones: suitable for zones 3 – 8
Colours: the petals are pure whitethe cup may be a single colour (e.g. green or yellow), but is more often golden yellow rimmed with red, and has a green eye
Shape/form: petals are large, while cup is small and flat
usually one flower to a stem
Alternate names: none
Notes: good for borders or as cut flowers
Example varieties: Actaea* (snow white petals with golden yellow cup, edged in red, green eye), Cantabile* (white with deep green eye, rimmed with yellow and red), Felindre (white star-shaped petals, yellow cup with red rim, green eye), Green Pearl* (overlapping white petals, white cup, green eye), Pheasant’s Eye* = Narcissus poeticus var. recurvus (same colouring as Actaea, but slightly smaller flowers and petals are less “tight”)

Miniature Daffodils


50 Mixed Miniature Daffodil/Narcissus Bulbs Dwarf Special Mixture Perennial

Miniature Daffodils are diminutive versions of standard daffodils. They have been selected or cultivated from existing species or varieties, and retain the basic form, blooming habits, colours, and the hardiness of these standard varieties.

For example, “Little Gem” and “King Alfred” are both varieties which belong to Division 1 (Trumpet Daffodils). “Little Gem” resembles “King Alfred” in all respects except size, to the extent that it is sometimes even sold under the name “Mini King Alfred”.

Because of their diminutive features, Miniature Daffodils can be overwhelmed if planted next to large flowers or bushes. However, they are very good choices for rock gardens, for containers (such as window boxes), and are excellent for indoors.

Variety name Division Height Colour and form Flowering time Notes
Baby Moon Jonquilla (7) 4 – 10″ (10 – 25 cm) golden yellow mid to late spring may have as many as five blossoms per stalk; each blossom is approximately 3/4″ to 1″ in diameter, with petite petals and a tiny cup; blossoms have a lovely sweet fragrance
Canaliculatus Tazetta (8) 4 – 6″ (10 – 15 cm0 white petals (slightly bent back) and short yellow-orange cups mid spring 3 to 7 flowers per stem; exceptionally sweet fragrance; excellent for indoor forcing.
Golden Bells Bulbocodium Hybrids (10) 4 – 8″ (10 – 20 cm) extremely large yellow trumpet with very small, pointed, yellow petals; it somewhat resembles the Species Daffodil Hoop Petticoat mid to late spring produces 5-10 flowers from one bulb; good as a container plant, in the garden, or for indoor forcing; forces with a very short cold period; best in moist, humus-containing soil
Hawera Triandrus (5) 5 – 8″ (12 – 20 cm) many dainty, pendulant, bell-shaped cups of pale yellow with swept-back petals late spring forces beautifully in pots

Jonquilla Daffodils


Plants4Less Daffodil ‘Silver Chimes’ narcissus jonquilla 12 bulbs

The daffodils of this group are noted primarily for their scent: the most fragrant daffodils of the Narcissus genus are found in this division.

These daffodils are also floriferous; in other words, they normally produce more than one flower per stem. On average, a Jonquilla Daffodil will have two to six blossoms per stalk.

They are also known for being exceptionally durable. The bulbs naturalize (i.e. come back year after year, gradually multiplying) extremely well.

Unlike some daffodils, which prefer a cooler climate, Jonquils do very well in hot climates and appreciate a hot summer sun. However, the pink-cupped varieties should be planted in semi-shade or filtered sunlight to maintain their rosy cup colour.

Flowering time: Most Jonquillas are late spring flowering
There are a few exceptions: Trevithian** (early), Pipit* and Suzy* (mid-spring)
Plant height: 10 – 16″ (25 – 40 cm) is the average height
Some miniature varieties (eg. Baby Moon*, Kidling*) may grow to be only 4″ (10 cm) tall
Other varieties (eg. Shah*, Stratosphere**) have been cultivated to be particularly large and may grow to 24″ (60 cm)
Minimum planting depth: 5″ (12 cm0
Hardiness zones: Suitable for zones 5 – 9
However the variety “Sweetness” prefers zones 6 – 10
Colours: White or yellow petals with white, yellow, peach, pink, or orange cup
May have a green eye
Shape/form: Petals are either spreading or reflexed (bent back)
Cup is normally wider than it is long; either cup-shaped, funnel-shaped or flared
Leaves are narrow and dark green, resembling rushes
One to five (sometimes eight) flowers to a stem
Alternate names: Jonquils, Small Jonquils
Notes: Ideal as cut flowers; good for beds and borders
Example varieties: Bell Song* (white with pink cup), Fruit Cup** (white with pale yellow cup), Hillstar (lemon yellow with ivory cup), Intrigue (bright yellow with frilled white cup),Martinette** (golden yellow with orange cup), Pink Angel (white petals, white cup with pink rim and green eye), Pipit* (sulphur yellow with white cup), Quail* (bronzy yellow), Sailboat* (white with cream or yellow-cream cup), Stratosphere** (golden yellow with orange cup), Suzy* (golden yellow with red cup), Sweetness** (golden yellow), Trevithian** (deep yellow), Waterperry (white with peachy-yellow cup)

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.

Flowering time: mid spring
Plant height: 12 – 18″ (30 – 46 cm)
Minimum planting depth: 6″ (15 cm)
Hardiness zones: most are suitable for zones 3 – 8a few varieties are only suitable for warmer climates: Abba* (zones: 5 – 9), Bridal Crown** (zones 4 – 9), Cheerfulness** (zones 4 – 9), Erlicheer* (zones 6 – 9)
Colours: white or yellow with white, yellow, pink, peach, orange, or red cup/centre
Shape/form: double of the perianth segments (“petals”) or the corona (“cup”), or both
one or more flowers to a stem
Alternate names: none
Notes: excellent for cut flower arrangements; good for beds and borders
require some protection from the wind
Example varieties: Abba* (white with orange, 3-5 florets per stem), Acropolis* (white with orange-red cup), Bridal Crown** (creamy white and saffron yellow cup, 3-6 florets per stem),Cheerfulness** (white with yellow cup, 2-3 florets per stem), Delnashaugh (white with apricot cup), Erlicheer* (white with honey yellow cup, 6 to 12 or more on a stem), Flower Drift (white with orange-yellow cup), Golden Ducat (golden yellow), Ice King (white with yellow cup), Manly (yellow with mandarin orange), Obdam (cream to white), Petit Four (white with apricot pink), Replete (white with peach), Rosy Cloud (white with rosy pink), Sir Winston Churchill** (creamy white with orange, 2-3 florets per stem), Tahiti (yellow with orange), White Lion* (white and soft yellow), Yellow Cheerfulness** (primrose yellow, 2-3 florets per stem)

Dall’s Porpoise


Kevin Smith / Design Pics – Dall’s Porpoises swimming at the surface of the ocean Prince William Sound Whittier Southcentral Alaska USA Winter Photo Print (60.96 x 96.52 cm)

Dall’s porpoises occur throughout the North Pacific Ocean. This species is also found in the adjacent Bering Sea, Sea of Japan, and Okhotsk Sea.

Dall’s porpoises are “high strung,” fast swimming members of the porpoise family and are common in the North Pacific Ocean. They can reach a maximum length of just under 8 feet (2.4 m) and weigh up to 480 pounds (220 kg). Males are slightly larger and thicker than females, which reach lengths of just under 7 feet (2.1 m) long.

Dall’s porpoises have a relatively small, triangular head with little or no beak and a thick, robust body. The flippers are small, round, and located forward on the body. The dorsal fin is positioned in the middle of the back, triangular in shape, and often cant, or angles, forward.

These porpoises are usually found in groups averaging between 2-20 individuals, but have been occasionally seen in larger, loosely associated groups in the hundreds or even thousands of animals. They are known to associate with Pacific white-sided dolphins and short-finned pilot whales. As rapid, gregarious swimmers, they are also attracted to fast moving vessels and commonly bowride.

They feed on small schooling fish (e.g., anchovies, herring, and hake), mid- and deep water fish (e.g., myctophids and smelts), cephalopods (e.g., squid and octopus), and occasionally crabs and shrimp. Feeding usually occurs at night when their prey vertically migrate up toward the surface.

Dall’s porpoises are capable of diving up to 1640 feet (500 m) in order to reach their prey. They have 38-56 very small spade-shaped teeth on each jaw that are useful for grasping. Their brisk surfacing while swimming creates a “rooster tail” of water spray that is a unique characteristic of the species.

Dall’s porpoises become sexually mature at 3.5-8 years of age and give birth to a single calf after 10-12 months, usually between June and September. The calves are generally 3.3 feet (1 m) long. Calves are typically nursed by their mother for less than one year. These cetaceans can live up to 22 years, but their lifespan is generally 15-20 years.

Finless Porpoise


Finless porpoise (24×33 inch, 60×82 cm) Silk Poster PJ18-9BF2

Finless porpoises are widely distributed in the coastal waters of Asia, from the Persian Gulf, east and north to Central Japan and as far south as the northern coast of Java and the Strait of Sunda. Finless porpoises are described as a coastal, estuarine or riverine species and they are usually sighted near the coast.

Finless porpoises are slender and have no dorsal fin. In its place along the mid-dorsum is a low dorsal ridge which is covered by thick  skin.

Newborn finless porpoises are mainly black with some grey on the dorsal ridge area. These young porpoises quickly become lighter and after 4 to 6 months attain the uniform light grey colour of adults.

Both male and female finless porpoises grow to lengths greater then 1.55 m. Although there is a great deal of variability between populations of finless porpoises, males become sexually mature at 4.5 – 9 years and females at 3-7 years.

Finless porpoises are opportunistic feeders, consuming a wide variety of fishes, shrimps and cephalopods throughout their range.

Harbor Porpoise


Gold Crown For Keep Calm Love Animals – Gold Crown Keep Calm And Love Harbor Porpoises – 16×16 inch Pillow Case

Harbour porpoises are found in the temperate waters of the northern hemisphere in a nearly circumpolar distribution. They generally inhabit coastal waters with a depth of less than 150 meters, and their common name is derived from their regular appearance in bays and harbours. Many populations of harbour porpoises are migratory.

The harbour porpoise is the most widespread, commonly seen and studied of all porpoises. They are very shy animals and only show their backs and dorsal fin when surfacing the water. One of the harbour porpoises names, the puffing pig, is derived from the noise of its blow when they surface the water for air. The noise makes sounds like a human sneezing or puffing.

Living in cool temperate waters the porpoise has a high metabolic rate, therefore the less choosy they are with their diet, the more successful they will be finding a meal.  Their diet consists of over 20 different species of fish, squid, octopus and shellfish.  Herring, sprat and sandeels make up a large part of the diet among porpoises around the Isle of Mull and the small Isles.  They hunt singly or in small groups, usually including 2 to 10 individuals.  They are quite accomplished divers and when feeding may surface to breathe about four times every 10 to 20 seconds before diving for up to six minutes.  They can reach depths of over 230 metres.

Of all cetaceans they have the shortest lifespan.  Capable of reaching up to 20 years, but rarely do, the average life is around ten.  Sexual maturity is reached at three to four years with females gestating for approximately 11 months.  Only one calf is born annually, which means the porpoises reproductive life is extremely short.  Calves are born at around 70 centrimetres long and have a strong bond with their mother.  Males play no part in the upbringing of the offspring.  Weaning can ocur quickly and individuals as young as six months have been known to become independent.  With such a short lifespan and reproductive life harbour porpoises are highly susceptible to sudden decreases in local populations.

Yangtze river Dolphin


Witness To Extinction: How We Failed to Save the Yangtze River Dolphin

The Baiji (Yangtze) Dolphin is a species that  is found along 1,700km from the Three Gorges to the mouth of the Yangtze River, China.

Classification: This species is the only member of this genus. The Latin, Leipo (‘left behind’) refers to the restricted distribution, whilst vexillifer means ‘to bear a banner’.

Local Names: Chinese River Dolphin; Yangtze Dolphin; Yangtze River Dolphin; Beiji; Pai C’hi; Whitefin Dolphin; Whiteflag Dolphin.

The Baiji has a very long, narrow beak, with abrupt forehead and tiny eyes set high on the sides of the head. The triangular dorsal fin has a blunt peak. They are blue-grey in colour, fading to white below. Maximum length and weight are around 2.5m and 160kg respectively.

Baiji feed upon a variety of fish.Small groups of 3-7 are most common, with occasional groups of 10 being observed. Baiji are wary of boats and difficult to approach.

Amazon River Dolphin


Facts About the Amazon River Dolphin (A Picture Book For Kids, Vol 166)

They are known in Peru as “Bufeo Colorado” but the correct name is “Bufeo Rosado,” meaning pink, not red. The Amazon River Dolphin is also known as “boto”.They can be up to 9 feet long or more and usually weigh between 190-285 pounds.Their echo-location ability is excellent.During the rainy season, when the Amazon River floods, they swim amongst the rainforest trees, which are under water.

The Amazon River Dolphin can be pink or gray in color. They are a freshwater dolphin (there are 5 known species in the world) and are the largest of the freshwater dolphins. Loss of habitat has caused them to become an endangered species. Their diet consists of 43 species of 19 families of fish, this is why they have developed three stomachs to digest these bony fish, turtles, etc. They have an unfused vertebra in their spine so they can more their heads from side to side.

Unlike most dolphin species, boto does not have a dorsal fin, but has a ridge on its back.The Amazon River Dolphin is born a dark gray, but gets pinker as it gets older. Scientists are not quite sure why.They often hunt and feed alone, but are sometimes found in groups of 5-8.Baby dolphins are called “calves”.

La plata Dolphin


Anisnap Kids watches- Dolphin snap-on wrist splash resistant watch for kids the perfect girls watches and boys watches that’s a time teacher and the perfect gift for any occasion birthday gifts or Christmas gifts.

La Plata River Dolphin, also known by the scientific name Pontoporia blainvillei live off the coasts of Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina in South America. La Plata dolphins are also called franciscana and Pontoporia blainvillei.

They are very small dolphins: they only grow to be 4 or 5 (less than 2 meters) feet long! They are grayish-brown and have very long beaks. They have many sharp teeth in their beaks that they use to catch fish, shrimp and squid. Every year, a new layer is added to each dolphin’s teeth.

La Plata dolphins are very hard to see in the ocean, so no one knows how many there are in the wild. Very little is known about how these dolphins behave. Sadly, they are often caught in fishermens nets and are killed.
