Daffodils welcome you to spring. They are excellent perennial plants for borders and are great for what to plant in-between shrubs. Planting daffodils in pots is also a viable alternative. Also, they are great in woodland gardens and as cut flowers.
Daffodils can be divided into 13 different types, these differences are mostly based on variations of the cups (corona) and the petals (perianth). Daffodils are commonly and interchangeably called Narcissus or Narcissi. Specifically, daffodils are the varieties which have larger cups and larger overall blooms.
There are early indoor and outdoor daffodils, with some being more fragrant than others. Daffodils have a significant amount of variety with their growth; some stems may only bear 1 or 2 flowers, whereas others can reach upwards of 20.
The flowers are generally yellow, orange or white with either uniform cups and petals or contrasting colours.
Daffodil bulbs planting time is in the fall season, approximately 2-4 weeks before the ground freezes. In more severe climates, ensure that the bulbs are covered with at least 6-7 cm of soil. The general rule is to plant the bulbs to a depth that is three times (3X) the size of the bulb. Also, a good depth will help reinforce the plant structure during growth to prevent bending or drooping.
Daffodils grow best in full sun to partially shaded areas. During flowering the plants will need a moist soil and mulching is suggested to maintain moisture. Although they are tolerant of most soil types, daffodils prefer a slightly acidic soil.
