Description
Triandrus Daffodils are the ones hybridized from the wild species that offers several flowers per stem. Thalia has elegant, nodding wild-style flowers on stems up to 16' tall. And each stem branches into two to four flowers, all with heavy fragrance. Like Actaea, the Poet's Daffodil, this one is another wonderful daffodil for wild gardens. Plant them once, and they're yours forever.

Naturalizing Daffodils. Probably nothing in the gardening world is more foolproof and more rewarding than 'naturalizing' daffodils. Because unlike most other garden flowers, these fantastic plants are super-easy to plant in fall, they don't care about soil, as long as it's well-drained, and they'll bloom beautifully for you with absolutely no work every spring after you plant them. Best of all, daffodils increase over the years, each bulb developing into a blooming clump. All you have to do is pick the spots. The one thing to remember is that you won't be able to mow that area until the tops die down. Everything else takes care of itself. In a new or established wildflower meadow, the wildflower plants grow up around the daffodils hiding the fading foliage, so there's no work to do. And if you're planting wildflower seed, what could be easier that to pop in the bulbs when you have the ground already turned?

About the Wild Daffodils. Like wild tulips which are more the size of crocus, most of the wild daffodils are tiny too. They're generally small wildflowers that have been hybridized by the Dutch into the big tall beauties we know today.

Unlike tulips which are native to Central Asia, daffodils are European wildflowers, native to areas of France, Spain and Portugal.

Holland is not the ancestral home of any bulb flowers. But it's the home of almost all the hybrids, since the Dutch hybridizers have not only created thousands of new flowers gardeners love, they've developed a huge national industry that supplies bulbs to gardeners worldwide.

To a wildgardener, of course, the original un-hybridized species (and their close hybrids) are all interesting, and even better, they're all dependably perennial. Plant them once, and they're there forever. Unlike the hybrids which develop bigger and bigger clumps each year, and have to be divided every few seasons for good bloom, the wild species simply spread, like they do in the wild. So there is absolutely no maintenance for the wild bulbs, once you get them established.

Here are the major wild species:
Narcissus tazetta
Narcissus triandrus
Narcissus pseudonarcissus
Narcissis jonquilla
Narcissus poeticus recurvus
Narcissus clyclamineus

          Comments about American Meadows Narcissus Triandrus Thalia - Bag of 8:

          Very healthy and hardy plants--all of my bulbs came up and bloomed their first year after a long and cold winter. Plants look neat and delicate--leaves are thin, upright and deep green and flowers are smaller than expected from website picture. The multiple blooms are still stunning. Flowers are creamy white and look exotic when compared to other daffodils. Blooms are fragrant but not overly sweet. Definitely a winner if you are looking for an elegant spring flower.

              These are truly lovely bulbs to have in your spring garden. They are a soft white, which complements other colors or stands beautifully alone. The shape is graceful, elegant and unique, with a lovely perianth that floats upward. A clump of Thalia looks almost like a cluster of butterflies or birds softly resting amongst greenery. The flowers are fragrant and I have found them to be hardy and prolific.

              What is a "Quality Bulb," and Why Does Bulb Quality Matter?

              Flower bulbs come in a wide variety of sizes. It is important to get the largest, best quality bulbs you can find. Larger bulbs help to ensure success, producing larger and stronger plants with more flowers.

              Several flower bulbs are part of the onion family, and because of this I like to use Onions as a representation of how important bulb size is. Which of the onions on your shelf go bad first? The smallest ones! Larger onions are more resilient, taking longer to dry out/rot and can withstand swings in temperature better. Flower bulbs are the same. Larger bulbs will withstand disease, draught, large amounts of moisture, and colder temperatures significantly better than the smaller ones.

              Here at American Meadows we are committed to providing you with the highest quality bulbs. This means we do everything we can to source the largest bulbs possible. Below is a comparison of bulbs purchased from three different retail stores:

              Each of the glass tubes contains 20 Dutch Master Daffodils. Starting from the left, the first tube is what is sold here at American Meadows, the middle tube was purchased at a local “Home Supply” box store, and the third is another online retailer. The difference is easily noticeable.

              The next picture is the same comparison, but with Tulip Bulbs:

              Again, our bulbs are quite a bit larger than other retailers.

              Other things to be aware of when it comes to bulb quality is making sure they are firm and without signs of external damage or cracking. Do your best to avoid bulbs that are already growing and have shoots or freshly grown roots. This is difficult when purchasing online, but if you are ordering through a reputable company, they should be checking for these things regularly.

              Next time you are looking to buy bulbs, think about how much time you put into planning and planting your garden and then anxiously waiting for your flowers to grow and bloom. Don’t be disappointed after all that effort by planting sub-par bulbs. Buy the largest, firmest, disease free bulbs you can afford, and you will have the best possible results.
