Description

Dwarf daffodils are more popular every year, since their early color lights lengthens the spring season of color. Imagine these in the fronts of beds, planted against shrubs, or any other spot where early color will be a treat. Planting these little beauties is a snap, too, since the bulbs are small and easy to handle. And remember, all daffodils are deer resistant and dependably perennial. Plant these once, and you'll enjoy them for years.

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?
