The Narcissus poeticus var. recurvus (Pheasant's Eye Daffodil) is a rare narcissus with a memorable appearance and a subtly spicy fragrance.

The unique and delightful blooms of this heirloom Narcissus poeticus var. recurvus have large, star-shaped petals in soft white that curl slightly along their edges and fan out so that they're lying almost flat. In the center of the petals is a deep green eye that is ringed by a low, ruffled cup of yellow rimmed with a scarlet band.

Pheasant's Eye starts flowering in late spring, when most other daffodils have already blossomed, thus extending the daffodil season by weeks. This lovely, low-maintenance plant grows to a height of 15 to 18 inches. It thrives in full sunlight or partial shade, particularly preferring warm, southern climes.

The Pheasant's Eye has a special tolerance for moist soil in the spring and winter. It is deer resistant and makes a beautiful addition to any bed or border arrangement. It is also great for naturalizing wooded environments. Zones 4-8.

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


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.


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!
