Tête-à-tête daffodils update...

The Tête-à-tête daffodils that I bought a couple of weeks ago have grown tall and bloomed. Outside, under their normal growing conditions, they would only be about 6” – 12” high, but because they have been inside under fairly low light conditions (for plants) they have become rather lanky in their effort to reach the (non-existent) sunlight.

The flowers, though, are absolutely charming. They are unabashedly cheerful, the bright, sunny yellow glowing in my dining room. And they have a sweet fragrance. Aren't fragrant plants wonderful?

{Narcissus 'Tête-à-tête'}

I think the tiny shoots coming up in the pot may be new little bulblets as the plant multiplies itself. So exciting! Later, in spring, when the ground and air have (finally) warmed up, I will divide the bulbs and plant them outside.

They probably won’t bloom next year because of being forced this year, but future years should give me plenty of delightful, Lilliputian Tête-à-tête daffodils.

Have a beautiful day!
