Description
Tahiti is one of the finest double daffodils in years, combining rich gold and glowing orange in an almost rose-like bloom. Each flower is elegant with great substance.

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?

          Comments about American Meadows Double Daffodil Bulbs Tahiti - Bag of 8:

          I have a long border bed along a lake and have sectioned it into 15 separate sections divided by large shrubs. Each section is designed to have bright flowers blooming all season. My plan is to plant a different variety of daffodil in each section (nearly done) and watch when they bloom - will mix them a little to achieve the longest blooming possible with the daffodils I have selected.

            These were my longest blooming daffodils, and every single bulb grew in a less-than-perfect site (dry, less than full sun, and teeming with chipmunks and squirrels)

            Used in front of foundation plantings. Bulbs and blooms are small compared to Brecks identical variety. Stems are too flimsy to support the blooms requiring additional support.

              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.
