Daffodils are cherished emblems of spring and this year their bloom time has been helped along by a succession of sunny and mild days, though it is drier than normal for late April and we really need a good, soaking rain.
Many other flowering plants are also making a magnificent display in shades of pink, yellow, lavender and blue. Seeing them along country roads and meadow lanes is a tonic after our long and harsh winter.
It thrives in Zones 3 through 7, blooms mid- to late-season and is deer and rodent proof. Cut some for the vase and enjoy their fragrant and romantic beauty.
