Acropolis Daffodil Bulbs

Acropolis is an excellent new daffodil variety that is a far cry from the yellow trumpeted flowers of Wordsworth's world. This is a pristine white daffodil with well formed and wide petals that form a circular frame around a centre fortified (that is the Acropolis bit we think) with lots of more diminutive white petals that in turn are interspersed with petals of a bright orangey-red: the effect is almost peony like, but on a smaller scale not least because it stands about 45 cm tall in full flower. And, if you get up close you are rewarded by a whiff of really lovely spicy daffodil smell. We are delighted to include this in our range of spring flowering daffodils and narcissi.

Short of a Parthenon

Acropolis' intriguing flowers and remarkable colouring make it a first class choice for potting up in beautiful planters and displaying prominently. That way it is less far to bend to benefit from their wonderful scent! Any left over bulbs should be sent straight to the cutting garden; Acropolis makes a wonderful cut flower. While we love the scent, it is apparently abhorrent to rabbits and deer so Acropolis would be ideal to use in the wilder parts of the garden where you want your daffs to naturalise and multiply. For a pure white mixed planting, invest in some White Dream Tulips too or pick out the orangey petal colour and plant the stunning flaming Princess Irene or an outrageous, variegated tulip such as Burning Heart.

It's All Greek to Me

While clearly Acropolis is a Greek word for a fortified citadel on high ground, this flower is reminiscent of the bleached white stone that makes up the buildings on the Acropolis above Athens. At the same time its complex double form represents the beauty and symmetry of those buildings.
