Las Vegas Daffodil Bulbs
Las Vegas Daffodils
Las Vegas is a scented, creamy white daffodil with a buttercup yellow trumpet. It is unclear if it was named to represent the silver and gold of winnings in the casinos of Las Vegas or the beauty of the showgirls there. Either way the name works and Las Vegas is an odds on bet for any garden... we classify it as reaching 40 cms but in the right situation and growing conditions the flowers - which are large and upright - can be carried on stems of up to 60 cms which makes Las Vegas a superb cutting daffodil which is one reason why it is among our spring flowering daffodils for sale
Place your bets
This is one of the best of the bicolour daffodils appearing in March with clockwork regularity and reliability producing large, long lasting blooms whether it is grown in flower beds, cutting borders, containers or in grass where it naturalises very well indeed. Just a great all round performer - a bit like one of those showgirls! - it barely needs distraction but to ring the changes you could add in a few Ice Follies or Ellen (very similar but flowers a month earlier) to keep the bicoloured theme going.

Myths and lore
It is always a good idea when contemplating daffodils to ponder on poor, old Echo who more or less cried herself to death because Narcissus spurned her love. Narcissus then met his own watery end by falling in love with his reflection in a pond. Hmmm.
