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.
