Daffodil General Information

Double narcissi have extra petals. The petals or the trumpet can be doubled and at times both. Fragrant and floriferous, these selections may need some protection from the wind. Consider planting them under deciduous trees that will not leaf out until after the Narcissi have bloomed.

Daffodil Plant Care

In fall, plant bulbs in deep, fertile, well-drained soil in full sun to light shade. Plant 6" apart and 6" deep in groups of 5,7,9 or more. Water during their growth period. After flowers bloom, let the foliage die back naturally. Once the foliage fades, cut it back. Interested in forcing bulbs? Visit our Useful Links page.
