Cassata Daffodil is best described as delicate, yet, its large flowers make an even larger statement in the landscape. A mid-season bloomer, ‘Cassata’ is a split-corona daffodil whose pale lemon cup is separated into large ruffled segments that lie on top of pale white petals. As it ages, the entire flower fades to white. Beautiful for bouquets. Deer resistant. Full sun. (Narcissus ‘Cassata’)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
(16-18” tall) Cassata Daffodil (Narcissus ‘Cassata’) is an old favorite that folds its large lemon-yellow cup back against pure white petals – almost matching them in size. As it ages, the 4” cup fades to white. All sections of the flower have a delicate translucence about them, beautifully capturing the essence of spring. ‘Cassata’ is a mid-season bloomer and can extend your Daffodil season if planted with early-and late-season Daffodils, or with other contrasting bulbs like Muscari. Daffodils are remarkably hardy bulbs and remain at the top of the list for deer resistant flowers. Naturalize ‘Cassata’ in a meadow, or along a stream bank for a delicate accent, and don’t forget to cut a few of the strong blooms for indoor bouquets. Plant 6” deep in well-drained, well-fed soil with a position in full sun or light shade.

Planting & Care

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.

Tulip Bulb Comparison

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.
