Narcissus 'Red Devon'

Red Devon (Narcissus 'Red Devon') is a large-cupped daffodil with a pale yellow perianth and contrasting vivid red-orange trumpet. It flowers late in spring, generally in March/April, but its best show can be as late as the middle of April.

Like all the daffodils in our Naturalising Mix, 'Red Devon' is ideally suited to naturalising and will spread by itself over the years. Its stout stem and fade-resistant blooms make it ideal for cut flowers and it is a popular choice as a show flower.

It can be grown in containers and indoors as well as in a variety of more-or-less sunny outdoor settings. 'Red Devon' will create a bold and striking late spring display. See the full range of narcissus and daffodil bulbs we have available for sale.

Plant Care

Plant daffodils in autumn (August-November) at around 10-15cm deep, in full sun or partial shade. Spacing the bulbs should be about 8-12cm and can be random for a naturalistic display.

They'll do best in well-drained, moderately fertile soils but will tolerate a wide range of soils and pH including clay, chalk, loam, and sand. Just avoid waterlogging as they can be susceptible to bulb rot.

The striking yellow and orange flowers give bright colour in late spring (April). Deadheading can be done when the flowers are finished. These bulbs will grow better in subsequent years if the leaves are left to die back before cutting them.

When planting in containers or for indoors, put the bulbs in pots at a depth of around 5cm in a loam-based compost in early autumn. Keep them outdoors in a cold frame until shoots appear, then grow them on in a greenhouse. Once the buds are opening you can bring them indoors for a lovely spring display, or place your containers outside.

Look out for...

Daffodils can be attacked by slugs and are also subject to Narcissus yellow stripe virus, basal rot, large narcissus fly, and eelworm.

Daffodil sap can be a skin irritant so handle all Narcissus with care. Don't eat them - they are poisonous and have on rare occasions been mistaken for onions with unpleasant results...

Did you know...

Narcissus 'Red Devon' is named after the renowned red beef cattle which, like the daffodil, was bred in the county that gives them their names.

'Red Devon' was launched in 1943 by nurseryman E.B. Champernowne, and the company that carries his name still exists. Created from a cross between 'Fortune' and 'Killigrew', this cultivar has gone on to win many awards and is popular around the world.

Its suitability for cutting has contributed to it being much loved as a show flower.
