Narcissus Golden Ducat
A huge, golden yellow daffodil with layer upon layer of petals like a double pinwheel. As with all doubles, Golden Ducat appreciates some protection from strong wind. A spendid cut flower.
Golden Ducat Daffodil is an open herbaceous perennial with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.
This is a relatively low maintenance perennial, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Golden Ducat Daffodil is recommended for the following landscape applications;
General Garden Use
Mass Planting
Naturalizing And Woodland Gardens
Container Planting
Border Edging
Plant Characteristics:
Golden Ducat Daffodil will grow to be about 12 inches tall at maturity extending to 16 inches tall with the flowers, with a spread of 16 inches. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years. As this plant tends to go dormant in summer, it is best interplanted with late-season bloomers to hide the dying foliage.

This perennial does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder zones. This plant can be propagated by multiplication of the underground bulbs.

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.

Daffodil bulbs should be planted outdoors in October and November, with the pointed end facing upwards, at a depth of approximately 10cm (4"). Choose a sunny or semi shaded position in moist, free draining soil.
Daffodils look particularly eye-catching when grown in drifts in borders or informal areas of grass. Cast the bulbs across the area and plant them where they land for a really natural effect.
For an attractive indoor display, plant Daffodils in containers in bulb fibre and position them in a cool garage or other well ventilated, dark position at a maximum temperature of 10°C. Water when necessary to keep the compost moist. When the growing shoots reach a height of 10 cm (4") move the containers to a cool bright position indoors (approximately 16°C).
