Daffodils are among the easiest plants to grow, and the rewards far outweigh the work. Of the major groups of bulbs, daffodils are the only truly reliable perennials, and the blooming season can be as long as two months if the right varieties are chosen.
Even seasoned gardeners will experience a treat with the fascinating variety of colors, forms and sizes available in today’s daffodils. Gardeners who live in warmer climates such as the South and West Coast can easily have a six-month bloom season, beginning in October, and going through the winter into the spring.
