Wayside Gardens Signature Product
Every spring bulb garden needs one or two exceptional varieties to stand out among all others, and 'Ring of Fire' is our nominee for the Narcissus display! This Large-Cupped (Division II) beauty offers very large blooms of white with a frilly ivory cup edged in pure red. There is no other like it to be had, and 'Ring of Fire' delights wherever it is grown or shown!

Fully 4 inches wide, these flowers offer a perianth of pure white surrounding a large, frilly cup of ivory-white. The edges of the cup are outlined in red -- not golden or orange, but pure fire-engine red, a very rare color in the Narcissus family. These blooms arise on stems 18 to 20 inches high, superb for cutting and outstanding in a mixed planting of daffodil varieties.

'Ring of Fire' blooms in midseason, after the first jonquils and earliest-flowering daffodils have passed but before the tulips have begun. It is suitable for containers as well as garden culture, and withstands rough winds and rains very well. Its beauty is far more than just petal-deep!

Our Narcissus bulbs are Dutch grown and cured, then shipped to us for delivery to you at proper fall planting time. They are eager to grow and bloom, and will naturalize over time if planted in a congenial location. Set them deep, let the foliage die back completely after the blooms pass in spring, and you will soon find yourself with a colony of glorious color each spring! Zones 4-9. Pack of 10.

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!
