Blooming Narcissus 'Martha Stewart'

The ‘Martha Stewart’ daffodils are blooming 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 to 18 inches tall, and look stunning against my luscious green lawns. In fact, all the daffodils at the farm are blooming so nicely this year. 

Here are some photos - enjoy.
