Grand Soleil d’Or in the house


This is a big event for me, as it’s the first time I’ve ever kept any of these for myself; last year, I gave them as gifts. Or maybe I did keep some, but they bud blasted, which is what I thought had happened this time. As you can see, the bud tips were somewhat brown and wrinkled (more evident in an earlier image, below), but after what seemed like forever, the blooms came out. I suspect the lights and humidifier in the plant room may have helped. I have a bunch more coming up; most are the double form, though.


What do you call the tissue-y covering of these buds, the part that peels away? I can’t seem to find this info. All daffs have it, including the very uncooperative Obdams I have outside, none of which bloom anymore. I’m finding indoor daff forcing much more rewarding than growing them outside, at least in my garden.

That membranous covering is a spathe, Elizabeth. Hunting down esoteric bits of info is a great way to distract myself when faced with a deadline that isn't cooperating...;-)

Glad you have indoor daffs, even if your outdoor ones are brats for you. They grow well here for us although I'm a longway from having a host of golden daffodils, a la Wordsworth...

How prety and spring like. Already your new plant room is making a difference, eh?

It's great that you decided to keep some Daffodils for yourself - having bulbs blooming inside in the middle of winter is so cheering.

Ooooh, a spathe! I can impress all my plant nerd friends now, which, basically, is you Elizabeth.
