#ProPlantTips for Care:

Daffodils love blooming in full sun or partial sun and appreciating afternoon shade in warmer hardiness zones where the sun is intense. Fall-planted bulbs require full sun and well-drained soil, any type is suitable so long as it is not soggy. Add bulb fertilizer to each hole for best results. Deadhead after flowers fade, but let the leaves remain so they can make food for the bulb and next year's flowers! Not only is it strong, but it also has incredible endurance. Its blooms endure through spring showers and days of sunshine.

  • Full Sun For Strongest Growth & Partial Shade
  • Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Deadhead After Flowers Fade & Prune Mounds After Leaves Yellow
  • Deer Seldom Bother Them
