One of the few daffodils that naturalizes readily in the deep south . It is wonderful to see them in full bloom in early february here in Central Texas .

The Houston Chronicle had a survey of the top 10 daffs which do well in our area and Carlton was in the list, so I'm looking forward to many years of being delighted by this beauty. Huge flower.

One of the most popular narcissus, 'Carlton' is an early spring bloomer with classic daffodil habit. According to Brent & Becky, it is one of the best perennializers and it does do well in our garden. Heirloom, 1927. An early spring bloomer. About 12-14 inches tall.
