Carlton is an heirloom narcissus which dates to pre 1927 a favourite of the cut flower trade because of it’s long lasting flowers.

For as long as I can remember Narcissus Carlton has been a staple in the production of daffodil bulbs. Clean spherical bulbs which have a great resistance to diseases common in daffodils. 

The flower is crisp yellow and well balanced with a good sized trumpet and full, round petals.

If you’re looking for classic daffodil bulbs then this is a great choice. 

What is a Trumpet Daffodil?

Narcissus are classified by 13 divisions, each with unique characteristic. Division 1 is the trumpet daffodil. Top of the list! These single yellow or white flowers have petals that are shorter than the trumpet. You can test it by pressing down the petal to see where it comes on the trumpet.

If the petals are longer then these would be classified as large cup daffodils. 


What are naturalising bulbs?

Naturalising is a term almost synonymous with daffodils. If narcissus are left in the ground undisturbed then they will begin to spread year by year either by seed or by the bulbs dividing.

After a few years they will begin to look very “natural” by not being invasive.

If you wish to stop your daffodils from spreading the best thing to do is remove the seed heads after flowering. This will also help the bulbs perform well for following years.
