Symbols of rebirth and hope, daffodils are extraordinarily rewarding every spring with their bright cheery blossoms warming our soul from the previous winter months.

  • Blooming starts in late winter to early spring and lasts for six weeks to six months, depending on your geographic area and daffodil cultivars. Daffodils flower only once each year and they do not all bloom at the same time. There are early season, midseason and late season daffodils. By choosing the right daffodil bulbs to plant in the fall, you can enjoy daffodil flowers as early as late December and as late as May, depending on your climate.
     
  • Daffodils are perennial bulbs. They grow back year after year and gently spread and multiply under good growing conditions, creating drifts of colorful flowers. This is because daffodil bulbs produce new little bulbs, and many even produce seeds.
     
  • There are between 40 and 200 daffodil species and subspecies and over 32,000 daffodil cultivars available. They offer a wide range of flower shapes, sizes and colors, and are divided into 13 groups, based mainly on their flower form. Double daffodils, jonquil daffodils, miniature daffodils, trumpet daffodils are some of the most popular daffodil groups.
     
  • Daffodils make gardening easy. Once planted, there is nothing left to do: these bulbs can stay right where they are and produce flowers year after year. After blooming, remove the faded flowers to prevent seed set (unless desired for naturalizing), but do not remove the foliage until it withers.
     
  • As an added bonus, most daffodils are fragrant and all are deer and rodent resistant.
