Daffodil, Pink Charm

Daffodil 'Pink Charm' his a soft coral-pink trumpet that is edged in apricot and the outer petals are ivory white. This plant is resistant to deer. Flowers are good for cutting.

'Pink Charm' is a large-cupped daffodil with one flower per stem. ‘Pink Charm’ rises 16-18” tall in spring. Each flower features ivory white petals and a yellowish white cup with a distinctive band of coral at the rim. Blooms mid-season. Narrow, strap-shaped, green leaves in clumps. Large-cupped daffodils are perhaps the most popular of the twelve daffodil divisions. By definition, a large-cup daffodil features a cup (corona) that is more than 1/3 but less than the length of the petals.

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. Unlike tulips, daffodils keep blooming year after year. They are best sited in beds, borders, wild gardens, open woodland areas, in front of shrubs or massed under trees. They are best planted in quantity, from smaller groupings of at least 6 bulbs to large sweeping drifts. They mix well with other spring-flowering bulbs.

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.
