Pheasant's Eye Daffodils

If you're looking for a truly unique daffodil bulb to plant this year, we suggest trying the wonderful Pheasant's Eye Daffodil, or Actaea Daffodil.

This large white daffodil, which is also sometimes called the Poet's Daffodil, is a charming combination of white petals, red and yellow rim to a cup with a surprising bit of green inside. The green of the inside cup, or "eye", is what gives the Pheasant's Eye Daffodil its name.

These are beautiful to see bloom in the garden, and we planted ours in naturalized drifts at different points throughout our border.

Again, you do not want to plant daffodils in straight lines, and when you see a cluster of these exquisite daffodils come up in the springtime, you'll be charmed both by their unique look and their fragrant scent.
