An all-time favorite, Pheasant’s Eye Daffodil is a naturalizing heirloom that was introduced in 1796. The snow-white recurved petals surround small golden-yellow cups with a delicate red accent. One flower per stem and sweetly fragrant, it’s easy to see why this Daffodil has remained a favorite for centuries. Bees and butterflies love the open flowers yet deer, rabbits, and squirrels leave it alone. Great cut flowers too! (Narcissus poeticus var. recurvus)

Naturalizing Daffodils: Probably nothing in the gardening world is more foolproof and more rewarding than 'naturalizing' daffodils. 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 naturalize and spread over the years, each bulb developing into a blooming clump. In a new or established wildflower meadow, the wildflower plants grow up around the daffodils to hide the fading foliage. They’re reliably critter resistant, too. Plant plenty to enjoy the cheerful spring blooms, with extras for cut flowers too.
