Ideal for GARDEN and CONTAINER PLANTING
A successfully naturalized daffodil field can bloom for up to 30 or even 50 years! First, choose an area with good drainage and sunlight. An area where grass can be left unmown until the foliage has matured is ideal. Hillsides are excellent spots. The edges of woods are also good, if you are planting an early-blooming variety which will have a chance to mature before the trees come into full leaf. For best impact, plant drifts of like kinds and colors. Many gardeners arrange their drifts simply by taking handfuls of bulbs and throwing them about for a natural-feeling distribution — just dig where the bulbs land!
Since it naturalizes so well, it’s just the thing for creating a wildflower corner. Equally at home in beds, borders or the cutting garden. A gorgeous, deer-proof landscaping solution.
