Specialty daffodils start the season
publication date: Jun 1, 2011
Before being introduced to the beautiful world of fragrant and uniquely flowered Narcissus I thought all daffodils looked like the standard King Alfred type, plain, big, bright and kind of ugly — not to mention cheap and widely available in the spring. Here our local wholesalers sell big bunches of them for less than a dollar each. The grocery stores practically give them away, too. But after a visit to a grower friend’s cooler in March I was permanently hooked on the beauty and charm of specialty daffodils. One can find delicate, fragrant, spicy, unique, ruffled, double, romantic and beautifully colored varieties all in the same family!
