Gardeners' Notes:

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.
