The Blooming Narcissus 'Martha Stewart'

The ‘Martha Stewart’ daffodils are blooming once again at the farm.

Underneath the majestic pin oaks in the allee, and the stand of weeping willows is a relatively new variety of Narcissi named after me by Van Engelen Inc., a wholesale flower bulb company in Bantam, Connecticut. Narcissus ‘Martha Stewart’ is a Karel van der Veek hybrid with a three-inch white perianth surrounding a pale yellow cup. In full bloom, these flowers grow to about 16-18 inches tall, and look wonderful against the luscious green lawns. Here are some photos.
