Sunny, yellow daffodils are a wonderful sign that spring has arrived. Here’s how to grow daffodils in your garden!
Daffodils are hardy and easy perennials to grow in most regions of North America, except Southern Florida. Plant the bulbs in the fall and they will bloom in late winter or early spring.
Their attractive flowers usually bear showy yellow or white flowers with six petals and a trumpet-shape central corona. Leafless stems bear between 1 and 20 flowers; sometimes the flowers need to be staked so that they don’t weigh down the stems.
Daffodils are suitable for planting between shrubs or in a border, or for forcing blooms indoors. They also look wonderful in a woodland garden and in large groves. You’ll find that many gardeners plant the bulbs not just by the dozens but by the hundreds! Daffodil flowers are also excellent for cutting.
