As spring arrives at RHS Garden Rosemoor take delight in glorious displays of golden daffodils
Spring is in the air at RHS Garden Rosemoor in Devon. The garden is bursting with colour as thousands of daffodils come into bloom, making it the perfect setting for a springtime stroll.
To make Rosemoor’s daffodil displays even more spectacular, in recent years the garden team have planted thousands of additional daffodil bulbs in beds, containers and our meadow areas, including 2,000 of our namesake Narcissus ‘Rosemoor Gold’.
Our daffodil hotspots
Be dazzled in the Cottage Garden
, where daffodils spill from pots and flow through the borders. Look out for Narcissus ‘Hawera’
, a dainty daffodil with slender stems and nodding, lemon yellow flowers – one of Curator Jonathan Webster’s favourite cultivars.
The native daffodil Narcissus pseudonarcissus dances through the Stream Garden, while Lady Anne’s Arboretum becomes a sea of golden yellow from the distinctive blooms of the hoop petticoat daffodil N. bulbocodium.
Spring dawns in the Stone Garden
with a succession of container displays packed full of daffodils and seasonal treasures that flood the garden with colour. The beautiful Camellia × williamsii ‘Saint Ewe’
presides over the display, offering a profusion of delicate pink blooms.
In the Winter Garden, generous drifts of Narcissus ‘Jack Snipe’ mingle with primroses, pulmonaria and hellebores, while the soft lemon yellow tones of Narcissus ‘Trena’ enhance the deep blue flowers of Scilla sardensis – a classic spring colour combination.
