Plant Information

Here's a great mixture of all the best color combos in Large Cupped Daffodils. Just look at the glowing pinks and oranges, in addition to the classic golds and whites! This mix literally lights up the garden.

Naturalizing Daffodils. Probably nothing in the gardening world is more foolproof and more rewarding than 'naturalizing' daffodils. Because unlike most other garden flowers, these fantastic plants are super-easy to plant in fall, they don't care about soil, as long as it's well-drained, and they'll bloom beautifully for you with absolutely no work every spring after you plant them. Best of all, daffodils increase over the years, each bulb developing into a blooming clump. All you have to do is pick the spots. The one thing to remember is that you won't be able to mow that area until the tops die down. Everything else takes care of itself. In a new or established wildflower meadow, the wildflower plants grow up around the daffodils hiding the fading foliage, so there's no work to do. And if you're planting wildflower seed, what could be easier that to pop in the bulbs when you have the ground already turned?'

Daffodil Bulbs Comparison

What is a "Quality Bulb," and Why Does Bulb Quality Matter?

Flower bulbs come in a wide variety of sizes. It is important to get the largest, best quality bulbs you can find. Larger bulbs help to ensure success, producing larger and stronger plants with more flowers.

Several flower bulbs are part of the onion family, and because of this I like to use Onions as a representation of how important bulb size is. Which of the onions on your shelf go bad first? The smallest ones! Larger onions are more resilient, taking longer to dry out/rot and can withstand swings in temperature better. Flower bulbs are the same. Larger bulbs will withstand disease, draught, large amounts of moisture, and colder temperatures significantly better than the smaller ones.

Tulip Bulb Comparison

Here at American Meadows we are committed to providing you with the highest quality bulbs. This means we do everything we can to source the largest bulbs possible. Below is a comparison of bulbs purchased from three different retail stores:

Each of the glass tubes contains 20 Dutch Master Daffodils. Starting from the left, the first tube is what is sold here at American Meadows, the middle tube was purchased at a local “Home Supply” box store, and the third is another online retailer. The difference is easily noticeable.

The next picture is the same comparison, but with Tulip Bulbs:

Again, our bulbs are quite a bit larger than other retailers.

Other things to be aware of when it comes to bulb quality is making sure they are firm and without signs of external damage or cracking. Do your best to avoid bulbs that are already growing and have shoots or freshly grown roots. This is difficult when purchasing online, but if you are ordering through a reputable company, they should be checking for these things regularly.

Next time you are looking to buy bulbs, think about how much time you put into planning and planting your garden and then anxiously waiting for your flowers to grow and bloom. Don’t be disappointed after all that effort by planting sub-par bulbs. Buy the largest, firmest, disease free bulbs you can afford, and you will have the best possible results.

    Comments about American Meadows Large Cupped Daffodil Bulbs Sunshine Mix:

    The daffodils are big and gorgeous. My only complaint was that they were advertised as having differing colours and there was not the variety I expected. Two yellow ones, and all the rest were off white with a bit of very pale yellow on the inside 'trumpet'.
    In the picture of the product, there were colours of pink or red on the inside trumpet, and more colour variety overall.

      Comments about American Meadows Large Cupped Daffodil Bulbs Sunshine Mix:

      I was very disappointed in the colors. I had all yellows, no whites or pinks or oranges in the centers, plus I had a few "dud bulbs" that didn't grow. I also had mini daffodils that sprouted, not the large ones like I had ordered.

      Comments about American Meadows Large Cupped Daffodil Bulbs Sunshine Mix:

      Most of the blooms were small and almost stunted. They looked nothing like a Daffodil. I did not get even one of the pink blooms. But the 4 that bloomed out well were spectacular. I will have to buy some more just to see more of those blooms.

          I picked a bouquet for my daughter's cafe and placed it by the cash register. Almost everyone wants to know where they came from, they are so beautiful! So we tell them!!!
          I'm not an experienced gardener, just love daffodils in the spring. These bulbs are healthy and every one produced several blooms, the first season.
          American Meadows does a great job, I highly recommend them to everyone

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
