Daffodils bred by the late Grant Mitch are always worth seeking out, and this fragrant Jonquilla from his American bird series is no exception. Each stem holds 1–3, starry golden blooms with scalloped orange cups, a great color combination with Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginiana) or Grape Hyacinths (Muscari armeniacum). Early midseason.
Daffodils are easy to grow and largely immune to voles and deer. Give these bulbs well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. Once bloom is complete, there is no need to remove spent blossoms, but do allow the leaves to remain in place until they yellow (6–8 weeks). This ensures the following year's display.
