When to Plant
Delivery & Planting Times
Spring-flowering bulbs must be planted in the fall. They need cool soil to make roots before the onset of winter. Cool fall weather arrives at different times from north to south and from high elevations to low.
Please note that the temperature of the soil lags behind the air temperature. You can generally plant later than the windows provided in this map. As long as the ground is not frozen, you can still plant.
Tazetta daffodils make lots of flowers and lots of fragrance. A bulb can produce multiple stems and each stem can carry 10 small flowers or more, filling the air with a powerful sweet scent. This blend is composed of three complementary varieties that bloom in succession—from early to midseason. Excellent for cutting: You can harvest one bouquet after another. Introduced 2015

Note: These daffodils are especially well suited to growing conditions in the South and on the West Coast. They may not overwinter in cold climates.

Bulb size is determined by the circumference around the largest part of the bulb. Colorblends only delivers top size bulbs. Large bulbs produce more or larger flowers than small bulbs.
Hardy in USDA zones 7a to 8b in the South or 10b on the West Coast.
|Bloom Time||Early to Mid|
To get the most from daffodils, follow these 3 basic rules:
- Plant them where they will get at least 6 hours of direct sunlight, even after they have finished flowering and the trees have leafed out. Daffodils need lots of sun after they bloom to produce next year’s flowers.
- Plant them in soil that drains well. Avoid areas where water stands after a rainstorm.
- After daffodils flower, wait at least 8 weeks—until the leaves turn yellow — before cutting them. Never tie or braid daffodil foliage. This year’s leaves = next year’s flowers.
If you want to naturalize daffodils (i.e., plant them so that they look as though they had sprung up on their own), we suggest that you set them out in drifts (not in blocks or lines) and that you space the bulbs farther apart than recommended on the bag label (to allow room for the clumps to increase in size). If you want to naturalize daffodils in a grassy area, you must wait to mow until their foliage has turned yellow, which means allowing the grass to grow very tall.
|Depth of Planting Hole||4 inches|
|Spacing||3 inches apart|
