Name: Narcissus ‘Tête–à–tête’ 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.
