Daffodil Facts You Should Know Daffodil Facts You Should Know

The Daffodil is a perennial flower which requires very little care after planting. It is grown from a bulb which produces one flower annually, lasting several weeks. The flowers are available in every color of the yellow-orange spectrum; the most common are two-toned with a yellow perimeter and an orange center.

Growing Season

The Daffodil is one of the first flowers to emerge during early spring following the crocus. These bright yellow blossoms provide hope after a long winter and mark the progression of the seasons.

Maintenance

Once planted, the bulbs of the Daffodil will grow year after year and may even reproduce if allowed to grow unabated. Daffodils are very low maintenance—you don’t even have to worry yourself about cutting back the daffodil when it shows sign of weakness or death. Instead, allow the Daffodil to die naturally, as this will send nutrients back into the bulb for the next year.

Toxicity

It should be noted that the Daffodil is poisonous to domesticated animals, including dogs, cats and horses. The bulb is the most toxic part of the plant, so you must take care where you choose to plant the bulbs in case you have a pet who likes to dig.
