Narcissus 'Martha Stewart' in Bloom

All the daffodils at the farm are blooming so nicely this year, including the Narcissus ‘Martha Stewart’.

Last week, I shared photos of the Daffodil Border bursting with color and zest. On the other side of the farm, underneath the majestic pin oaks in the allee, and the stand of weeping willows, is a 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 edged in a thick band of frilly apricot-pink. In full bloom, these flowers grow to about 16 to 18 inches tall, and look wonderful against the luscious green lawns.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
