|Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Plant bulbs 3-5″ deep in fall. Bulbs prefer a neutral to slightly acid, sandy loam. After flowers have bloomed, the top portion of each flower stem may be removed to prevent seed formation (optional), but foliage should not be cut back until it begins to yellow. Flowers usually face the sun, so bulbs should be grown with any shade areas at the rear of the planting. Bulbs can be left undisturbed for a number of years. Propagation by bulb division is easiest.
This triandrus daffodil (Division V) rises to 12-14″ tall and features petite, very fragrant, outward-facing, bell-like, pure white flowers, with slightly reflexed petals. Blooms in spring. Usually 2-3 flowers per stem.
No serious insect or disease problems. Bulb rot can be a problem in poorly drained soils.
This daffodil grows well in intimate groupings in rock gardens, in border fronts, near shrubs or trees, in wild gardens or in naturalized areas. Mixes well with other spring bulbs.
