Daffodil, 'Lothario'

'Lothario' has attractive yellow flowers with vivid orange-scarlet cups. Its shorter height makes it ideal for the front of the border and containers. This daffodil is a great perennial variety with excellent vigor and naturalizes well. It is easy to grow in well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade and is also known to be deer resistant. Daffodils look best in mass plantings. They are also delightful cut flowers. Daffodils may be planted anywhere in your landscape, in sun or shade, along borders, in groups along a fence or around a tree or mailbox.
