- USDA hardiness zones:
Split-corona daffodil (Division XI). Sometimes also called butterfly narcissus or papillon narcissus. These daffodils rise to 15-17\ tall and feature upward-facing flowers with pure white petals and split cups with a sunburst of lemon yellow emanating from the center of each cup. Blooms in mid-season (April in the St. Louis area)."
- Full sun to part shade
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Plant bulbs 5-6\ deep in fall. Bulbs prefer a neutral to slightly acid soil. Bulbs are easily grown and can be left undisturbed for a number of years. Propagation by bulb division is easiest. After flowers have bloomed, foliage should not be cut back until it begins to yellow. Flowers usually face the sun, so bulbs should be grown with any shade areas at the rear of the planting."
