Narcissus 'Barrett Browning' at Peter's Gate

Last October, we planted Narcissus 'Barrett Browning' in pots and placed them underground for the winter. In mid-April, we moved the plants in bud to the large pots at Peter's Gate in Depot Park. Later this month, we will transplant them into the new garden adjacent to the Bocelli Garden. This way, the daffodils perform double-duty. 'Barrett Browing' is a particularly good cultivar for this purpose because it is an excellent perennializer. It is an early small-cupped daffodil with pure white petals blushed with faint light yellow.  The cup is a brilliant red-orange that can be seen from a long distance. On top of that, 'Barrett Browning' has a lovely fragrance which can be enjoyed in a pot or a vase.
