I Love Narcissus ‘Tête-à-tête’

Mar 12, 2021 | Love This!

Name: NarcissusTêteàtête’ aka tete-a-tete miniature daffodils

Type of Plant: This early flowering spring bulb is a mini-daffodil that is commonly sold in pots at garden centers in the early spring.

Why I Love/Hate this plant: I love how this plant is widely sold as one of the first spring-flowering bulbs. I love that because it’s shorter, it mixes well with other spring flowers such as primrose and hyacinths. And I love the fact that after you enjoy it as an early sign of spring indoors, you can plant it outside and enjoy the early flowers for years to come.

A Word to the Wise: These narcissus are hardy in Zone 4-8. If you enjoy them indoors, as part of a mixed plant spring garden or by themselves, put the pots in a sunny window after flowering finishes. Fertilize with the product of your choice and water regularly until mid-April when you can plant the bulbs, with foliage still green and thriving, outdoors. Plant with the bulbs about three to four inches below the soil surface.

Since it flowers early and is compact in size, Tete-a-Tete daffodils are often used in spring flower show displays.

These small Narcissus are perfect for creating a “spring garden” in a basket or wooden crate indoors.

You can find this Narcissus in pots in the garden centers in March and April. Be sure to plant them outside after you’ve enjoyed their indoor display.
