The Daffodils are an early Spring blooming perennial that has breathtaking flowers that appear in late Winter to early Spring. This bare root plant ships year round.
Daffodils or Buttercups or as some people call them are one of the earliest Spring blooming perennials available. The bloom in the Winter. Usually around mid-February. These beautiful flowers are about 10 inches tall and have unusual yellow blooms with grass-like leaves growing along with them. They are sometimes called Easter Flowers. Great for celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
The bright and cheerful golds, oranges, whites and cream colors of the daffodil have made it a favorite in the garden for hundreds of years. Harbingers of spring, their physical beauty is joined by a strong, sweet fragrance.
Daffodil bulbs should be planted in the fall.
Famously, they should be planted in a hole three times their height, and each bulb should be planted 3 to 6 inches apart, though some people who have a lot of bulbs toss them around the garden, and plant them where they fall as long as they're not crowded. This results in a more natural look. Daffodils prefer full sun and soil that is fertile and a bit acidic. The ground should be able to drain well but retain moisture in the spring.
Make sure that the bulbs are well watered and well covered, for if the soil gets too dry, they may not bloom. Deadhead the flowers as they start to fade, but let the leaves remain. After a couple of years, lift the plants with a fork, and divide the clumps. Plant the new clumps of daffodil, or give them away.
