Narcissus 'Yellow Cheerfulness'

From our wide range of quality bulbs comes this soft yellow daffodil, 'Yellow Cheerfulness'. These multiple-headed daffodils bloom in clusters of bright yellow, with delicately edged petals and a touch of orange in the centre.

These colourful cousins to the paler 'Cheerfulness' are perfect for adding a stunning flair to any garden or household. These are available to be bought alone, or in our 'Exotic Daffodils Mix' for an exciting and unusual springtime display!

These are mid-spring flowerers (appearing in March through to April), carrying the season through perfectly for continuous floral glory! Narcissus 'Cheerfulness' has earned the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

This is an English-grown variety. Reaching around 35cm (14") in height, the light and delicate appearance of these daffodils makes them perfect for placement mid-border to break up harsher lines or dark colours.

This said, their versatility and hardiness also lends to use in all kinds of locations from city courtyards, to patio containers all the way to traditional wildflower meadows. See the full variety of daffodil and narcissus bulbs we have available for sale.

The flowers of 'Yellow Cheerfulness' have a strong, sweet fragrance - if a smell could be yellow and cheerful, this is it!

Standing on tall, straight stems, and as hardy as any other daffodil despite their appearance, 'Yellow Cheerfulness' makes for a perfect bouquet cut straight from the garden!

These bulbs are suitable for almost all types of soil and should be planted any time during autumn (from August to November) at around 10-15cm (4-6") deep, spaced around 10cm (4") apart, and preferably in full sun (no more than half shade).

They are very hardy and shouldn't need any further protection, but if planted shallower applying mulch may help protect against harsher winter frosts. These daffodils prefer moist yet well-drained soil, and overwatering should be avoided lest the bulbs become rotten and fail. Propagation is achieved by separating offsets and replanting as the leaves are fading in early summer.

On an ongoing basis, the plants should be dead-headed to maintain a tidy appearance; however the plants should not be cut back further and foliage should be allowed to die back naturally. If bloom performance was poor, low nitrogen, high potassium fertilizer can be supplied following flowering in order to improve the following years' showings.

These flowers are susceptible to few pests and diseases, but those of note are: slugs; large narcissus bulb fly; narcissus eelworm; bulb scale mite and basal rot.
