Daffodils are beautiful flowers. Also called as Narcissus daffodils are hardy flowering plants.
This fall planted perennial bulbs are scapose, having a single central leafless hollow flower stem. Several green or blue-green, narrow, strap-shaped leaves arise from the bulb. The plant stem usually bears a solitary flower, but occasionally a cluster of flowers (umbel).
Flowers may be single or double, grow singly on a stem or with multiple flowers per stem, and height varies from 6 to 20 inches.This trumpet shape contains the stamens and is the most conspicuous feature of the flower. The popularity of daffodil has resulted in the production of many varieties differing from the yellow parent form mainly in colour; the trumpet and petals may themselves be of contrasting yellow, white, pink, or orange.
||Full sun to partial shade
||Water newly planted bulbs thoroughly. In many regions, fall and winter are wet or snowy enough to provide moisture.
||Loose and well drained. To improve drainage in heavy soils, deeply dig in plenty of organic matter prior to planting.
||Daffodil flowers grow best in 50 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit
||Daffodils do not require heavy fertilization. When preparing the beds, use 2 to 3 pounds of a complete garden fertilizer such as a 6-24-24 or other fertilizer with a 1:4:4 or 1:3:3 N-P-K ratio.
