Daffodil varieties

sandy25pr(z6 NY)April 22, 2010

Would like to add to new bed of daffodils and muscari. Last fall I planted "Milk & Honey" daffs. What varieties can I add that will complement them and that bloom at same time.

Do you have a picture of Milk & Honey? I've never seen it.

Did you by any chance get the Milk and Honey from Brent and Becky's Bulbs? If so, it looks like it was bred by Brent and Becky (Heath) and Daffseek shows it to be a late variety.

Are there multiple blooms per stem?
Are they maybe fragrant?
Is the foliage rush like?

I see it has not been registered, yet anyway, and wonder why they gave it a name that existed already, just causing much confusion (imho) the daff collecting community...sigh.

3 different daffs named Milk and Honey, yet only one is registered...the one bred by William F.M. Copeland with its first flowering pre 1919.

Yes, I did get these from Brent & Beckys. However, only one small bloom per stem, fragrant and the foliage is rush like. Not offered in B&B Fall 2010 catalog.

Probably once they are established in your garden soil, you will see multiple blooms per stem on at least some of them.

Ok...Daffseek has that listed as a late variety.

What varieties can I add that will complement them and that bloom at same time.
Since I tend to love just about all daffs, I really can't say what would complement them. I tend to just want them all.
I would suggest you looking over the varieties at Brent and Becky's and then when you see something you like, check it at Daffseek to see what bloom time is shown for it.
The only thing required on the Daffseek form to check for additional info, is the 'exact' daff name.
