Three popular daffodil varieties determined to be highly salt tolerant

A study examined how salinities ranging from 0 to 300 mM NaCl affected growth, flower production, and leaf physiology of three popular daffodil cultivars. ‘Dutch Master’, ‘Tete-a-Tete’, and ‘Ice Follies’ were determined to be highly salt-tolerant because they maintain visual quality (leaf greenness, flower production, and flower duration) at soil NaCl-induced electrical conductivities greater than 6 dS•m^-1. The results indicated that all three cultivars could be good candidates for growth in salinized landscapes. —> Read More Here
