- Long Description
Given the RHS Award of Merit in 1963, Arctic Gold is a daffodil of outstanding quality with broad over-lapping golden yellow perianth petals and a large trumpet of the same colour which is deeply serrated at the mouth. Our Daffodils and Narcissi are ordered following the Royal Horticultural Society’s classification. Arctic Gold is a Division 1 – Trumpet Daffodil, these are characterised by a single flower to a stem with a trumpet which is as long, or longer, than its perianth’s segments. The difference between a daffodil and narcissus is down to the size of the cup, daffodils have a large trumpet while narcissus have a smaller cup. A well-drained soil, deeply worked and containing some humus us ideal for narcissus and they will not tolerate a waterlogged soil. Arctic Gold will grow to around 40cm and is recommended for exhibition. As mentioned previously it has been presented the RHS Award of Merit.
