Category : Pretty Golden Daffodils
Trumpet Daffodils have the “traditional” daffodil form: there is one large blossom per stem and the trumpet is exceptionally long. Specifically: the length of the trumpet is equal to the length of the petals, or longer.
These daffodils are noted for their long blooming season, and their very large blossoms. They look particularly good when planted in bunches or large clusters.
Trumpet Daffodils are also excellent naturalizers. In other words, they come back year after year, and will gradually multiply.
