One of our favorite white daffodil flowers is 'Thalia', a late white daffodil that means that spring is wrapping up, and we're heading into summer. This bulb is extremely dependable and has been around since 1916! This white on white star shaped daffodil brings a unique shape and interest to your daffodil garden. You will find multiple fragrant blooms on each stem. This makes a great cut flower for inside your home. Narcissus triandrus 'Thalia' conditions are similar to most daffodils: full winter sun, well drained soil, avoid standing water, and avoiding too much competition.
Blooms: The Narcissus 'Thalia' will adorn your April garden with its big beautiful white blooms. This is a great choice if you want a pure white trumpet daffodil! This is one of our favorites. Each stem contains 1-2 blooms. l The blooms have a lovely fresh fragrance. At 12-14" tall they look great mixed in with other daffodils or planted en masse for a dramatic display. These look great in a vase of flowers on your table.
Plant: Plant the bulb like most daffodils in 6+ hours of winter sun, well-drained soil, avoid standing water, and avoiding too much competition. Plant the bulbs about 2-3 times the size of the bulb (so if the bulb is 1 inch long, plant it 2-3 inches deep). If you are farther north and get very cold during the winter, you may want to plant it about 4-6 inches deep. Space the holes about 3-6 inches apart, and for a more natural looking display, consider planting 2-3 bulbs in each hole.
Landscaping Tip: Narcissus bloom at different times so as one daffodil is ending its bloom time another is just beginning. We like to say that "there is a bulb that blooms every week of the year in warmer climates." Your garden can have consistent flowers that you can enjoy inside or outside for months and carry you all the way from February through April.
Fragrance: This Narcissus has a light, sweet fragrance. This fragrance can add an extra dimension of beauty to the flower and make it more attractive to pollinators like bees and butterflies.
