Narcissus 'Salome'

Narcissus 'Salome'

Common name daffodil
Family amaryllidaceae
Life cycle perennial bulb
Flowers white/yellow
Size 12-18"
Light sun-part shade

Descriptions of this hybrid daffodil say it has a pink trumpet, and so do some online photos – but most photos show flowers with yellow trumpets, and that's indeed what we have. Whether or not ours are the true named cultivar, they are certainly a nice mid-late-season daffodil, their soft yellow trumpets and milk-white petals really fitting a spring garden. We got a decent number of them one autumn from a big-box store, planted them in our sun-baked, clay-soiled driveway bed, and have enjoyed them every year since then.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
