Description

There are other double daffodils, but for years, Cheerfulness has been No. 1. There's really nothing else quite like it. The petals are a creamy white, and the exquisitely doubled centers are a ruffled mix of cream and lemon, sometimes with a tinge of pink. To top it off, each stem branches into a bouquet of up to three flowers.

Plant Cheerfulness in a spot where you'll enjoy it up close. Because its beauty and fragrance will make it your garden favorite.

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?
