Daffodils are the most cost effective, pest-free perennial plants available and make wonderful companions with other bulbs, perennials, annuals and flowering shrubs. They grow in almost all areas of the United States as long as there is a discernible winter. They are pest-free and when given ample sunlight, water and proper nutrition, will provide early spring color for many years. They are divided into 13 divisions according to their flower shape and heritage. Daffodils should be planted in full sun or at least 6 hours a day of sunlight after the leaves are on the trees and should be planted 3x the height of their bulb deep (3"-8"). The ADS defines DIVISION 3 - SMALL CUP as: "One flower to a stem; cup or corona not more than one-third the length of the perianth segments". These are long term perennializers and naturalizers, often with a spicy fragrance; zones 3-8; bulbs are 14/16 cm unless otherwise noted; 4-5 per sq. ft.
