Daffodil 'Bridal Crown' Overview

Daffodil 'Bridal Crown' is an early spring flowering perennial bulb that produces small but very fragrant, double, creamy-white long-lasting flowers whose inner petals are often a yellow-orange colour. For its name and fragrance, this popular cultivar has also earned a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit. Remove flower heads as they begin to fade and allow the leaves to die back naturally, as this helps to 'fatten' the bulb for the following year. If growing in a vegetable garden or allotment, clearly label as daffodil bulbs can be mistaken for onions with fatal results. Narcissus 'Bridal Crown' has been classified as belonging to Horticultural group 4, Double. These bulbs produce one or more flowers per stem. They can have either double petals (perianth segments), cups (corona), or they can have both.
