Split-Cup Narcissi

Split-Cup, or Split-Corona Narcissi have cups that are split into multiple sections that are at least one third, but usually are at least one half, of the length of its petals (perianth). They generally fall in to one of three groups defined by form: Collar, Papillon (Butterfly) or combination types. Collar-types have cup segments opposite the petal segments, usually in two whorls of three. Papillon-types has cup segments that alternate with the petal segments in a single whorl of six. Combination-types can exhibit wildly sectioned, variably filled flowers. They may have frilly, ruffled, flat and overlapping, or whorled petal segments. They usually have one flower per stem, and one stem per bulb. They are also much loved for the fact that deer and rodents do not like to eat them!

All Narcissi tolerate a wide range of sunlight from full sun to semi-shade. Varieties with pink cups are shades of light salmon, apricot-pink, coral or soft old rose. They should be grown in areas of filtered sunlight where their delicately colored cups may be protected from direct sunlight that bleaches out their pinkness. Narcissi prefer well-draining soil, hate to get wet feet and love to be fed with a 4-10-6 or 5-10-5 granular organic flower bulb fertilizer three times a year. Allow the foliage to thrive and die back naturally without braiding or premature removal. DNII bulb size: 14/16 cm, unless otherwise noted. Bloom time: April. Plant 6" to 8" deep and 6" apart. Horticultural Zone: 4-8. Height: 14" to 18", depending on the variety. Narcissus classification: Royal Horticultural Society Division 11.

Narcissi are The Art & Soul of Spring.
