Daffodil (Narcissus)

Most people think of frail yellow blooms from Grandma’s garden that weren’t all that memorable. But not so. There are so many incredible heirloom varieties with fluffy fragrant flowers from whites to apricots to, of course, yellows. I love that famous grower, Floret, refers to these flowers as “heirloom fragrant narcissus.” Whether you call them narcissus, daffodils, or even paper whites, I think you’ll love these beauties as much as I do. They are a reliable grower, are strong in a vase and are the perfect symbol of spring. (When you harvest, wear gloves and dip the stems in boiling water to stop the sap flow. Let the stems sit in fresh water for a few hours before moving to clean water in an arrangement. Do NOT recut stems).
