Daffodil, Ice FolliesĀ 

This is an all-time favorite daffodil. Soft yellow & white in color. This is a playful yet elegant flower. Ice Follies is a very cheerful daffodil that is also sweetly scented! Petals are creamy-white, while the corona opens yellow and fades to white with a broadly flattened cup. A great performer. Renowned for outstanding growth habit and blooming quality. A showy display that will add springtime to any garden. Great for naturalizing. They will increase ten-fold over the years. Large-cupped daffodils are perhaps the most popular. By definition, a large-cup daffodil features a cup that is more than 1/3 but less than the length of the petals. 'Ice Follies' rises 14-16" tall in spring. Flowers are unusually large (to 4" across). Each flower features white petals and a ruffled yellow cup that matures to creamy white. One flower per stem. Narrow, linear to strap-shaped, green leaves in erect to sprawling clumps. Excellent fresh cut flower.

If planted in well-drained soil, daffodils are virtually disease and trouble free. Once finished flowering, allow foliage to flop over and dry out. Divide if flower production or size has dwindled. Daffodils are ideal for naturalizing (they bloom every spring) and may be planted anywhere in your landscape, in sun or shade, along borders, in groups along a fence or around a tree or mailbox. Daffodils look best in mass plantings. They make good container plants and are delightful cut flowers.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: The product should be planted immediately after received in the fall. In extremely warm climates, plant when the ground cools. You may plant earlier or later as long as the ground is not too warm or frozen. 1. Dig a hole 3-4 inches deep or 2 times the height of the bulb. 2. Set the bulbs firmly in place, with the pointed ends facing upward. 3. Cover the bulbs with soil and water thoroughly. Grow in informal groupings of 5 or more bulbs. Plant bulbs in fall 3-4 inches deep or 2 times the height of the bulb and 5" apart in well-drained soil with plenty of humus. Remove old flowers leaving as much stem and foliage as possible until they die down.
