Narcissus 'Gigantic Star'

Large-Cupped Daffodil

This Daffodil flower dwarfs most of the other ones at work. This bulb emerges from the soil with regular looking grass but when the flowers open you can see they are different size wise. I read somewhere that this is a good selection for warmer climate gardeners as it can live in USDA Zone 8 and has some people pushing it into Zone 9. It is also very hardy being able to live in Zone 3. If you are looking for a bread and butter type of big yellow daffodil I would recommend ‘Gigantic Star’. My experiences withthem have been pleasant.
