Daffodil General Information

Known best for their scent. Jonquillas are floriferous and extremely durable, slightly shorter, smaller blooming they look like miniature versions of many of the daffodil favorites! Consider planting them under deciduous trees that will not leaf out until after the Narcissus have bloomed.

Daffodil Plant Care

Water during their growth period. After flowers bloom, let the foliage die back naturally. Once the foliage fades, cut it back. Plant 4" deep and 4" apart. Interested in forcing bulbs? Visit our Useful Links page.
