ROCKGARDEN - THALIA

  • Deer resistant
  • Great for naturalizing
  • Fragrant
  • Full sun to partial shade

The Narcissus Thalia, also colloquially referred to as the Orchid Narcissus, is an award-winning daffodil that is sought after for its large, fragrant blooms. These daffodils look great scattered amongst other flowers, but they make a stunning impact when planted in clusters due to the 3-4 flowers per stem. They’re also fantastic naturalizes and resistant to both deer and rabbits! When planted in September-December, you can expect to see delicate white flowers begin to appear in March and April with an eventual height of 14 inches. Plant bulbs 4 inches deep and 3 inches apart in well-draining soil. Be sure to keep the soil moist throughout the growing season; Thalias are more tolerant of the extra moisture from consistently damp soil. Thalias do best in full sun, much like other daffodils, but they also do perfectly fine in some shade.

    How to Grow Narcissi:

    Plant Narcissi bulbs in the fall. Plant about two to four weeks before the ground freezes to allow the roots to develop underground. Plant them 6-8 inches deep. Space plants three to six inches apart. Note, that Narcissi will tolerate some crowding. Sprinkle a little bulb fertilizer in the hole during planting. For established beds, spread the fertilizer on top of the soil. You can work it in lightly, but you risk damaging the bulbs. As natives to woodland areas, Narcissi will grow well in shade to full sun. After they bloom in the spring, allow the plants to grow until they die off. They need time after blooming to store energy in the bulbs for next year. To remove the dead plant, either snip them off at the base, or twist the leaves while pulling lightly.
