When Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning became famous for their love and their poetry, they never knew theyd be memorialized so beautifully. 'Barrett Browning' is a unique hybrid that combines the richness of solid deep orange with the flat, strong white of a corolla of great substance.
And the results are in. Barrett Browning is No. 9 on the Netherland Flower Bulb Centre's Top Ten Daffodil list. (Dutch Master/King Alfred is still No. 1.) With thousands of daffodils being produced, this one is a big winner.
Naturalizing Daffodils. Probably nothing in the gardening world is more foolproof and more rewarding than 'naturalizing' daffodils. Because unlike most other garden flowers, these fantastic plants are super-easy to plant in fall, they don't care about soil, as long as it's well-drained, and they'll bloom beautifully for you with absolutely no work every spring after you plant them. Best of all, daffodils increase over the years, each bulb developing into a blooming clump. All you have to do is pick the spots. The one thing to remember is that you won't be able to mow that area until the tops die down. Everything else takes care of itself. In a new or established wildflower meadow, the wildflower plants grow up around the daffodils hiding the fading foliage, so there's no work to do. And if you're planting wildflower seed, what could be easier that to pop in the bulbs when you have the ground already turned?'
