Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Plant bulbs 4-5" deep in fall. Bulbs prefer a neutral to slightly acid soil. Propagation by bulb division is easiest. After flowers have bloomed, foliage should not be cut back until it begins to yellow. Flowers usually face the sun, so bulbs should be located with any shade areas at the rear of the planting.
A miscellaneous daffodil (Division XII). This very early blooming, miniature daffodil rises only to 6-8" tall and features 1-3 buttercup-yellow flowers with long, narrow trumpets and slightly reflexed petals per stem. Bulbs are easily grown, multiply rapidly and can be left undisturbed for a number of years.
No serious insect or disease problems. Bulb rot can be a problem in poorly drained soils.
This miniature daffodil may be massed or grown in intimate groupings in rock gardens, in border fronts, near shrubs or trees, in wild gardens or in naturalized areas. A popular cultivar for containers, window boxes and indoor forcing.
