Daffodils

Daffodil is the common name for Narcissus. They are touted as the most popular spring flower. Daffodils attain a height of approximately three inches to two feet. Daffodil colors include, orange, pink, apricot, red, white and yellow. Daffodils thrive in almost any garden soil and require sun or light shade. The planting time for Daffodil bulbs is September or October. The dwarf Daffodils are best suited to rockeries, urns, beds and bordering edges of gardens. The taller Daffodils are well suited to grassland, garden beds or under trees.

Daffodils have a central trumpet or cup which is referred to as the corona of the plant. The corona of the Daffodil is surrounded with six petals. The three outer petals are referred to as sepals and the three inner petals are referred to as petals.
