Description

Dutch Master (King Alfred Improved) has been Americas favorite daffodil for decades. (Read the King Alfred story below.) It's great for naturalizing, and creates the perfect early burst of classic color for any garden, wildflower meadow, or in fact, almost anyplace in your yard that doesn't need early mowing. Today, Dutch Master is literally the gold standard among daffodils, and by special arrangement with our importer, we make sure we always have them in good supply at great prices for our customers.

Imagine a field of fresh golden daffodils waving in the spring breeze. Remember the old movie, Dr. Zhivago? The spectacular vision of golden flowers carpeting the ground under spring-leaved trees. A drift of color up a hillside. A huge sweep of gold into the distance. As beautiful as the fantasy is, it couldn't be easier to create. And you only have to do it once.

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?

OK, what's the best Dutch daffodil for naturalizing? Well, most daffodils naturalize just fine, but if you want the classic drift of golden blooms, here's the story.
