When I was little, daffodils were by far my favorite flower. They shined their sunny faces everywhere in our yard, signaling the end of the long grey winter with their bright color in the still brown landscape. They continue to be one of my favorites today and I have a hard time resisting adding more varieties to my collection!
Daffodils are perennial and can last for years before needing to be dug and divided. Pushing up through layers of leaves or sod in the spring, they are a pretty low maintenance cut flower when it comes to weeding and care.
This year I added three new varieties to our collection here on the farm: Delnashaugh, White Lion, and Flower Parade. All of these varieties are "doubles," meaning they have multiple layers of fluffy petals in peach, yellow, and orange.
Daffodil season is wrapping up here, as the soggy cool spring is slowly taking its time ushering in other flowers. Soon we'll be flush in a rainbow of colors, but for now we'll savor the few blooms we can find!
