Gardeners' Notes:

Positive itsasickness On Feb 26, 2015, itsasickness from Gonzales, LA wrote:

Found these bulbs growing wild by the thousands on the side of I59 near Hattiesburg Mississippi so I had to jack me a few. The dotd won't miss them because they propagate so quickly. Planted in a full sun spot in front of my red camellia and the timing for both is perfect here in zone 9. Great little bulb to plant in front of other narcissus or mixed in with leucojum aestivum to naturalize.

Neutral CosmosandCleome On May 28, 2013, CosmosandCleome from Bethany, PA wrote:

Sprouted later than other Narcissi, in late April. Bloomed very late, at the end of May in my zone 5b garden. Leaves look similar to chives--tall and very narrow, darker green than other daffodils. The flower stalks are shorter than the leaves, ranging from 8 to 13 inches high. Each stalk bears two or three flowers. The flowers are tiny, barely one inch across. I planted them in groups of three or four; larger mass plantings would result in much greater visual impact.

Might work well as a foil in front of Allium 'Purple Sensation' to mask its tall stems--they are blooming concurrently in my garden.
