  • Ingestion may cause severe discomfort. Can also be a skin irritant.

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.

Tazetta Narcissus group includes very short cupped, sweetly fragrant, mid-sized daffodils (between 6 to 18 inches tall or 15 to 55 cm) bearing multiple flowers (from 3 to 20) to a sturdy stem. The world-famous Paperwhite narcissus also belongs to this group. This strongly scented narcissus is not winter hardy, but is perfect for producing flowers in a short period of time when grown indoors. In climatic zones 9 and 10, however, they can also be planted outside in the garden. The other cultivars in this group are suitable as garden plants, especially for placement among perennial plants or for cutting.
