The most popular companion of the tulip, daffodils are spring flowering bulbs mostly known as yellow trumpet-shaped flowers. However, daffodils (Narcissus) offer a wider range of flower shapes and colors that are absolutely fabulous when combined with other spring bulbs. Planted in the fall, they produce white, cream, pink, orange or red flowers year after year, that will bloom from early to late spring, depending on weather conditions and cultivars. There are so many types of daffodils that they are classified into 12 groups, mostly reflecting the number or size of the flowers per stem or the shape of the petals.
Member of the Trumpet Narcissus group, which includes traditional-looking daffodils with their single flower to a stem and their trumpet, just as long or longer than the length of the perianth segments.
