A very attractive daffodil. Blooms in April-May in my garden.

This Double Narcissus, Double Daffodil 'Tahiti' was originally ordered thru a bulb company back in 2002. It is doing great in my garden and it is now 2011! These bulbs were planted 7 inches down where I added bulb fertilizer and a better quality garden soil since my soil has a high orange clay content in that section of the yard. Then I topped it off with the current soil from the hole I dug. They never fail me and come up each spring, this photo was taken April 30th and they have been in bloom for some time already just to give you an idea when they come up in my area and it has been a cool spring this year. I highly recommend them!
See my photo posted..Enjoy!

Unbelievably Beautiful!
I just planted these in Autumn 2009, 10 from "Brent & Becky's Bulbs" &10 from another nursery. The ones from the other nursery are very pretty, but the ones from Brent & Becky's are SPECTACULAR! They are very large, very bright & my 10 bulbs multiplied to 24 their very first year!

I will very definitely be ordering more of "N. Tahiti". Also I love that they are "upfacing" with very strong stems so even though they're large flowers they don't droop.

I've done a fair amount of gardening, but I'm new to planting spring bulbs, having planted my first ones in Autumn 2008. I feel that bulbs like "N. Tahiti" make me look like I've been growing bulbs forever.

Tahiti is now in full bloom in the Pacific Northwest. These are splendid flowers, and easy care. Plant the bulbs where they will receive about 6 hours of sunlight, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m, Daylight Savings Time, add about 1/4 a cup of fertilizer 10-10-10, or well cured steer manure, cover them and by next spring, they ought to bloom.

I just ID'd this! Several years ago I bought a daff mix. This is the first daff that I have been able to name. I love it as it is blooming now and most of my other daffs are fading away. I will have to mark them for division- or buy more! The fragrance is very nice, too.

I just added it to the garden this season and I love it already. The orange sections emphasize the many layers (see the pic). The name fits it well - even the fragrance seems tropical.

A brightly-colored flower for spring, this variety also has a strong, sweet fragrance.
