triandrus daffodil ‘Lemon Drops’

Narcissus ‘Lemon Drops’ (triandrus daffodil ‘Lemon Drops’) are said to represent hope and prosperity, but only when grown or given in bunches – single blooms are said to bring misfortune. Luckily triandrus daffodil ‘Lemon Drops’ (Narcissus ‘Lemon Drops’) has multiple blooms, so this flower is always good luck!

‘Lemon Drops’ has 2-6 flowers that hang down from each stem. The outer petals are significantly lighter yellow than the fluted trumpets, which are lemon-yellow. The trumpet is shorter than most daffodils, and the outer petals are usually reflexes.
