Narcissus 'Barret Browning' - Small Cupped Daffodil


Overall Description


Barrett Browning provides amazing color contrast with pure snow white petals and a very slight yellow "halo" towards the base of each white petal. Then it offers a brightly orange colored cup at the center of each flower - outstanding appearance! This variety is a multiple award winner, and has been around since the early to mid 1900's. Barrett Browning will naturalize, and spread well with time, and proper care, environment, etc.

Best planted at a depth of 5" - 6" anytime in mid fall thru winter. Suggested planting is 3 - 4 bulbs per sq ft for good density once sprouted & blooming. Barrett Browning Daffodils are early to mid bloomers in spring, with blooming beginning in late March to early April in warmer zones - slightly later in colder areas of the country.

We offer our Narcissus 'Barrett Browning' Daffodil bulbs in a 2 pk, and guarantee them to be of excellent size & quality.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
