Gardeners' Notes:

Positive tabasco On Mar 25, 2012, tabasco from Cincinnati (Anderson Twp), OH (Zone 6a) wrote:

'Pink Charm' is a very popular and widely marketed 'pink' daffodil--but as as most bulb gardeners have come to know, 'pink' daffodils are really more on the 'apricot' side of of the color wheel and not pink at all in most garden conditions, and this is true for 'PInk Charm' too.

'Pink Charm' is 'charming' in form yet a strong grower and pretty planted with later blooming muscari latifolium and 'Apricot Beauty' tulips in our garden. About 14 inches tall and often with two flowers per stem. Ours have returned year after year and multiplied for an extra bonus (but not so for the 'Apricot Beauty' tulips that gave out after a couple of seasons.

None of the so called "pink" daffodils are anywhere near pink. The most one can wish for is a slightly orange tint.

They do have a pleasing shape and the sturdiness of narcissus, but if one wants True Pink flowers, go with something else.

There are some outstanding narcissus but these aren't among them.

I was also disappointed when I did not get pink flowers as pictured. However, they are pretty if you want something different from the usual yellow. They have multiplied wonderfully and I do enjoy them every year.

Blooms mid to late April in my garden.

I bought these from a well known catalog company, hoping they would be as pink as shown, but as with 'Replete', they aren't really pink. I was not happy about being mislead, and wrote for a refund. They said they were not supposed to be pink, but rather apricot . . . so why does their catalog say and show otherwise?! They are pretty enough for "apricot," but I wanted pink.

My information says that it is hardy in zones 3-9. When planting daffodils, dig a hole three times the depth of the bulb.
