Most Fragrant Daffodils

Daffodils, Narcissi, Spring Bulbs


Narcissus (Daffodils) are among the easiest bulbs to grow and immensely rewarding every spring, with their bright, cheery flowers that warm our soul from the previous chilly winter months. Long lived, they naturalize and multiply year after year. Highly versatile, they offer a fascinating array of flower forms, sizes, and colors. They also 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.

If you look for more than a beautiful drift of creamy or golden flowers, and wish to add another terrific dimension to your spring garden, plant fragrant Narcissus cultivars. While many daffodil bulbs are fragrant, most do not have a perfume powerful enough to enjoy unless you stick your nose directly into the bulb.

The following daffodils are regarded as the most fragrant. Grow them close to where you sit in the garden, or along paths to savor their sweet fragrance as you pass by.
