Narcissus 'Pipit' - Jonquilla Daffodil


Overall Description


Jonquilla Daffodils are unique in that they produce anywhere from 1 - 5, occasionally more, flowers per scape. Pipit Daffodils have multiple yellow colored blooms with a white cup shaped center, providing beautiful contrast. Pipit Daffodils are also great for forcing - for use indoors, or getting a jump start for spring in greenhouses, etc. Perfect Narcissus variety for use in naturalizing areas as well. These Daffdodils look stunning when used in a group or mass planted.

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

We offer our Narcissus 'Pipit' Daffodil bulbs at a per bulb price - be sure to check out the quantity discounts offered if you need several bulbs. Guaranteed 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.
