Description

Growing Daffodils (Narcissus): Small Cupped Daffodils have mid-sized flowers, one flower per stem, cups that measure no more than one-third the length of their petals. Typically have white or pale petals and boldly colored cups. A symbol of spring, these foolproof bulbs bloom beautifully, offering sunny hues and often sweet fragrance as well. Plant bulbs in fall for early season color in flowerpots, perennial beds, or large swaths in your yard. Best of all, Daffodils return year after year. They multiply and spread over time, with each bulb developing into a cluster of flowers. In gardens or wildflower meadows, summer perennials will grow up to hide the fading foliage. After flowering is done, allow foliage to die back naturally to feed the bulbs for next season’s blooms.
