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 7 - JONQUILLA as: "One to five flowers to a stem; perianth segments spreading or reflexed; flowers usually fragrant". The foliage is often reed-like or at least very narrow and dark green. Most like the hot baking summer sun; great for Southern gardens although many are adaptable in cooler climates as well; lovely, sweet fragrance that acts as a natural air freshener; zones 4-9.
