Giant Yellow Jonquils for Naturalizing

Giant Yellow Jonquils for Naturalizing

Naturalizing daffs saturated with sunny colour.

Enormous, yellow jonquils deliver an extra-long bloom time and exceptionally bright, pure yellow colour. Ideal for both planned perennial spring gardens and for naturalizing. They multiply annually for an ample supply of cut flowers.
While jonquils are beautiful on their own, they are a fantastic naturalizer.

What are Jonquils?

Jonquils are a type of daffodil, a subset of the species narcissus. Jonquils are sometimes called "rush" daffodils, because their dark green, cylindrical foliage looks a bit like rushes. While most daffodils have blade-like foliage, jonquils have leaves that are rounded on the edges. These cheerful flowers are a great addition to the springtime garden, in sunny yellow hues that catch the attention of passersby and pollinators alike.

When to plant Jonquils?

Jonquils are best planted in the fall. Like other spring blooming bulbs, jonquils need a cold period in order to sprout and flower. Plant your jonquils in autumn, after the weather has cooled to a consistent nightly cold of under 50 degrees. Plant them before the ground freezes, to allow them to settle in before the winter.

What is the difference between daffodils and jonquils?

Jonquils actually are daffodils-they're a subset of the same species. All jonquils are daffodils, but not all daffodils are jonquils. While most daffodils have blade-like foliage, jonquils have leaves that are rounded on the edges. Jonquil flowers are always yellow, and they have a pleasing fragrance. The length of the corona, or center cup, is shorter in jonquils than in other daffodils. And, jonquils tend to be among the shorter daffodil varieties, but some versions, like giant jonquils, grow to be quite tall.

What does naturalizing mean?

You may have heard and read that Jonquils are good naturalizing bulbs, but what does this mean exactly? In short, naturalizing means to plant bulbs in a way that makes your garden look like something you would find in nature. Because jonquils and other Narcissus divide underground, you'll eventually have a bed that's filled in with jonquils. Plant them en masse, in light, well-draining soil. The bulbs will multiply, and you can dig and divide them every few years to prevent overcrowding.

In order to divide your jonquils, lift them from the ground using spade. Lightly brush excess soil off the bulbs, and separate the smaller bulblets from the parent bulb. Replant them in the same location or transfer some to a new spot.
