Transform your front border or walkway into a vibrant carpet with Golden Bells Carpet Daffodils. These trumpet shaped flowers bloom profusely in mid spring. The blossoms feature deep coronas framed by star-shaped tepals, all in shades of sunny yellow. Each bulb can produce 15 to 20 flowers, carpeting the ground with an abundance of colourful blooms.
Narcissus bulbocodium 'golden bells' are hardy in zones 3 through 9, and can even handle warm climates. Plant these Dutch bulbs in the fall, in an area of well drained sandy, loamy or clay soil. Place them about 6 inches deep and 4 to 6 inches apart, pointed end up. Golden Bells carpet daffodil flowers thrive in full sun to partial shade and require very little care.
Golden Bells are an excellent choice when you want to lighten up a bare spot or introduce pops of colour to your lawn. Because they naturalise easily, these daffodils make a beautiful ground cover, creating a carpet of yellow hues under trees or shrubs. Each plant stands from 6 to 8 inches tall, making them a wonderful border for taller flowers. They are also a welcome sight in pots, planters and window boxes. The vivid blossoms last up to two weeks and these hardy perennials will return year after year. Brighten up your garden this spring with Golden Bells daffodils.
