Citrus Splash Mix is a gorgeous blend of some of the fanciest and most colorful Daffodils we know -- not to mention the most fragrant! Arising at various times in spring, this is a mix to bring you a long, lovely season of irresistible color!

Red-cupped, butter-and-sugar bicolors, and large trumpets are all features of this mix, which is composed of premier, large-size Dutch bulbs. These Narcissus are ready to establish in your garden and colonize over time, creating great drifts of color in full sun to part shade. Cast them across a meadow, along the driveway, down a slope, or among the perennials and shrubs in your borders and beds. Wherever the soil is well-drained and receives at least half a day of sunshine or dappled light, Citrus Mix will thrive!

Because one of the features of Citrus Splash MIx is variety, the daffodils in this collection bloom at varying times and reach various heights. Expect them, in general, to be about 12 to 16 inches high, 6 to 8 inches wide (although they can be planted much closer together, especially in containers), and to flower in early to mid-spring, depending on your climate. Most are bicolors, and all are sweetly fragrant. There's just no way to lose with this fabulous blend!

Perennial in hardiness zones 3 through 8, Daffodils are very resistant to pests (including deer, rabbits, voles, and other nibblers -- the bulbs are poisonous, and animals know it!) and diseases. They need no attention beyond a good deep planting in well-drained soil. After flowering, let the stems remain in the garden until they turn brown and fall over (this will take several weeks). During this post-flowering period, the bulb is actually storing all the nutrients it needs for another season of beauty. You may want to interplant your Daffodils with Daylilies, Irises, or other perennials to offer another season of color following the early spring triumph of the Daffodils!

Citrus Splash Mix is the ideal way to create an unforgettable Daffodil display in your landscape over the long term. The planting you make this fall -- even of just 20 bulbs -- will repay you richly in years to come. Daffodils are left alone by deer and other nibbling creatures, and generally very disease-free. And no plant is easier! Add this low maintenance display to the garden this season! Zones 3-8.

A Tradition of Distinction

Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market. The Wayside collection of new and exclusive plant products is so preeminent that the catalog has long been lauded in the industry and is even used as a reference work in horticultural schools.

Planting Spring-Blooming Bulbs

With Wayside’s bulbs, growing gorgeous flowers is as easy as Dig, Drop, Done.


Dig:

The first thing you want to do is pick your spot and dig the hole for your bulbs. Avoid places with standing water, as this could cause bulb rot. A good rule of thumb when planting is to dig down 3 times the height of the bulb, but you should follow the specific instructions for your bulb. Make sure to space out your bulbs to give your plants the right amount of room to grow later.

Drop:

Now put your bulbs in the ground, pointy side up. For fall planting, be sure to get the bulbs in before the first frost. For spring planting, the time varies by plant. Afterwards, cover the bulbs with soil and then water them in. This helps wake the bulbs up from dormancy and get them growing again.

Now you’re Done!

Just sit back and wait, and in the spring your bulbs will sprout up and reward you with their beautiful blooms throughout the season. Growing flowers from Wayside bulbs really is that easy!

No plant is easy the first time you garden with it. So here are some quick tips to make you look like a pro, even if you've never laid eyes on a daffodil bulb before in your life!

Daffodil bulbs often have two big shoots coming out of one base, as if two bulbs were stuck together. Don't separate them; just plant the whole thing. It will multiply even faster!

Plant daffodil bulbs with the wide base facing downwards, the pointy top facing up.

Plant the bulbs at a depth of least 3 times their height. In warmer climates, even deeper is recommended.

Do not add any "bulb food" or other enrichment at planting time.

After planting, daffodils need no special treatment. Water, mulch, or leave the soil alone, just as you normally would.

In spring, after the daffodils have bloomed, do not cut away the leaves. This is critical. Let them die all the way back; the plant is gathering nutrition for next year's growth during this period. If you want to hide the unattractive brown shoots, plant your daffodils among daylilies, which do a good job covering up the leaves with their fresh green foliage.

Tips for gardening in particularly hot, dry climates:


1. Water with a drip system whenever possible – soak the bed slowly and thoroughly to a depth of 10" to 12".

2. Watering deeply every 3 to 5 days is preferable to a shallow daily watering.

3. Water in the early morning, so foliage has time to dry.

4. Add a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch or similar material to aid in water retention and help keep the roots cool during hot weather.
