(12-14" tall) Scarlet O'Hara boasts a bold orange cup with golden yellow petals adding dramatic flair in mid-spring to your garden.  Fragrant, long long-lasting flowers are perfect when planted close to where you will enjoy them.  Perfect in pots on a patio or balcony where they will receive full sun to part shade.  Plant in well-drained soil, and if placed in a garden they will naturalize over time.  After blooms have faded they can be removed, but leave the foliage so the bulbs can store up energy for the following season.  Once the foliage has died back it can be removed.  Deer, squirrel, and rabbit resistant.

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?
