A Variety of Daffodils for the Garden
Daffodils provide a cheery presence in the spring garden and are a surefire way to chase away the winter blues. These fall-planted bulbs return each year, require no maintenance and are not bothered by deer or other pests.
Yellow trumpet daffodils are classics, but there are many other flower styles and colors to choose from. Double-flowering types like long-lasting lemon-yellow Sherbourne feature multiple rows of petals and some varieties look more like peonies than daffodils.
Multi-flowering varieties like Beautiful Eyes, display several flowers on each stem.
Split corona daffodils like Cassata provide an unexpected beauty and make lovely cut flowers. The cups on these daffodils are divided into segments that are pressed back against the petals.
These are just a few of the many choices that are available for your gardens, containers and spring bouquets.
A bit more information: Most daffodils are hardy in growing zones 3 to 8. In warmer zones, look for heat tolerant varieties such as Thalia and Silver Smiles. Wait for the soil to cool to prevent early sprouting. This is usually after night temperatures are consistently between 40 and 50 degrees.
