- USDA hardiness zones:
A Cyclamineus Narcissus (Division VI). By definition, a cyclamineus daffodil usually features only one flower per stem, with each flower having significantly reflexed perianth segments (petals), a generally long but narrow corona (trumpet or cup) and a short pedicel (neck). ëTracey is an early season blooming miniature daffodil that rises to 10-12î tall. Each flower (to 3î across) features reflexed white perianth segments and a yellow trumpet. The trumpet faces downward as the flower opens, but gradually ascends as the flower matures.
- Full sun to part shade
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers moderately fertile loams. Bulbs prefer a neutral to slightly acid soil. Plant bulbs 4-6î deep and to 6î apart in fall. Light fertilizer may be applied in spring after shoots emerge. 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. Propagation by bulb division is easiest. Clumps may be divided when flowering declines or clumps become too crowded.
Size and growth:
- 0.75 to 1.0 foot
- 0.5 to 0.75 feet
Bloom / flowers:
- White perianth and pale yellow trumpet
Showy flowers, White, and Yellow
Best in beds, borders, rock gardens, wild gardens, open woodland areas, in front of shrubs or massed under trees. Best planted in quantity, i.e., from smaller groupings of at least 6 bulbs to large sweeping drifts. Large, naturalized plantings in informal areas (meadows or open woodlands) can be spectacular. Mixes well with other spring-flowering bulbs.
No serious insect or disease problems. Bulb rot may occur in poorly-drained soils.
