n_NylonThe botanical name of the daffodil is Narcissus.

The daffodil is one of the most popular bulbs because of its persistence in flowering each year, with little or no care. It tolerates a wide range of soils, and can be planted in semi-shade to full sun.

It is a large genus with varieties from tiny miniatures to forms with flowers 10cm (4”) across on tall stems and a range of colours in pink, white, orange, green and all shades of yellow.

They are native to Asia , China , England , Europe , Northern Africa , Portugal and Spain .

Daffodils are divided into the following category divisions:

  1. Trumpet Daffodils (eg: King Alfred & Mount Hood )
  2. Large cupped (eg: Fortune & Rouge)
  3. Small cupped (eg: Chungking )
  4. Double (eg: Manly & Tahiti)
  5. Triandrus species & cultivars (eg: Silver Chimes & Thalia)
  6. Cyclamineus species & cultivars (eg: February Gold & Tete a Tete)
  7. Jonquilla species & cultivars (eg: Cherie)
  8. Tazetta species & cultivars (eg: Cragford & Paperwhite)
  9. Poeticus species & cultivars (eg: Poeticus & Princess Irene)
  10. Narcissus species not previously mentioned (eg: Bulbocodium & Viridiflorus)
n. ViridiflorusGrowing tips
   All soil types are suitable; however for best results dig in some humus and plant in a well drained position, as they dislike ‘wet feet’.

Most positions in the garden are suitable, as they tolerate semi-shade to full sun. I recommend full sun for the Bulbocodium sp (hoop petticoat daffodils)

The majority of daffodils survive on natural rainfall and don't need summer watering, although several of the species from summer rainfall regions (eg. Viridiflorus) require some watering.
