Organic poet's daffodils

The Narcissus poeticus 'Recurvus' is one of the most special daffodils because of its rarity, wonderfully intense scent, late flowering time and brightly colored small crown, which runs from green to yellow on the inside, to orange/red on the outside. It has bright white, shiny petals that are slightly turned back. It is also called 'white daffodil', 'poet's daffodil' or 'pheasant's eye' and is one of the last flowering daffodils. It grows to about 40 centimeters high with one or more bluish-green flower stems per bulb and narrow long leaves with the flowers still above and has one large flower on a flower stem. She is the last flowering daffodil that blooms for about 3 weeks in the period April and May.

Due to its long flowering period, it is very suitable as a cut flower, it smells wonderful and pollinators such as bees can easily access the nectar through the open crown.
Combine it with Hyacinthoides hispanica or Tulipa 'Red Impression' for a beautiful effect.

How, where and when do I plant a daffodil flowerbulb?

An organic daffodil flowerbulb needs a cold period, so plant it in the ground from September to January. The planting depth is 2 to 3 times the height of the flowerbulb itself and the planting distance is 2 to 3 times the width of the flowerbulb itself. When planting in pots, the flowerbulbs may be planted closer together and may extend half above the ground for a decorative effect. However, after flowering, the flowerbulbs should be planted back in the garden, while maintaining the planting depth and spacing discussed.

Plant the Narcissus poeticus 'Recurvus' in a sunny to semi-shaded location in your garden, pot or lawn. Plant them in groups in nutrient-rich, slightly moist soil. This versatile flower not only thrives in sandy soil, but also in clay soil.

Daffodil bulbs are poisonous, which is why they are avoided by rodents such as voles. Use them as a natural protection for other flowerbulbs by planting them around and between the other bulbs.

Care of the poeticus daffodil

Provide organic nutrition during planting. Cut off the spent flowers at the top and let the rest of the foliage die. Only cut it off when the leaf has completely dried out. The Narcissus poeticus 'Recurvus' is a true stinzen plant that naturalizes well. Provided it is in the right location, it will faithfully return every year. Provide organic food annually for optimal results.

Propagation

For propagation, the flower bulb can be dug out at the beginning of summer. The flower bulb is dried and stored in a warm place. They can be planted again from September. Plant the small bulbs separately and provide organic nutrition so that the small flower bulbs grow quickly.

Origin of the poeticus daffodil

The daffodil is an ancient genus dating from the late Oligocene and early Miocene epochs. They originate from southwestern Europe but are currently found in many parts of the world. Even the Bible references the symbolic flower in Isaiah 35:1:

"The desert and the barren land will rejoice, the steppe will rejoice and blossom like a daffodil, it will blossom abundantly" .

Carolus Clusius was the one who brought them to the Netherlands in 1565. He then brought the tazetta daffodil from Gibraltar, in 1599 he received the wild 'Thalia' from Spain and in 1613 he received the rare poeticus .

There are approximately 18,000 cultivars of which approximately 500 are grown. Most daffodils, also called daffodils, are grown in the United Kingdom. There they even started growing daffodils earlier than in the Netherlands.

The poeticus has been naturalized in the Netherlands for centuries. It is very rare, but mainly occurs on the banks of rivers. View the map here of where it occurs in the wild in the Netherlands.
