The last narcissus

Here it is, nearly Memorial Day, and I still have some narcissus blooming. These have been flowering  for about three weeks. The cultivar is Baby Moon, and as it name implies, it is a miniature, hardy in zones 5 to 9.

As you can see, the foliage is reed-like. Never having grown these before, I wasn’t sure where the buds were going to emerge. They just sort of pop out of the leaves.

This is a fragrant narcissus, which grows to about 8 inches. It looks incredibly cute in a tiny vase or in a rock garden, and it’s also very inexpensive. I bought 50 for $11.75. If you love narcissus and want to prolong the season, you might want to plant some of these.

    So pretty! I’m have several of the smaller narcissi too, and they seem to bloom on and on. Question for you…I loved the species tulips and would like to try them. Do you find them deer proof?
