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 6 - CYCLAMINEUS as: "One flower to a stem; perianth segments significantly reflexed; flower at an acute angle to the stem, with a very short pedicel or neck". With their faces looking like they are standing in front of a fan. They look wonderful in pots and are terrific for forcing. They seem to be more tolerant to partial shade and moisture as a group; 4-5 per sq. ft.; zones 4-9; Bulbs are 12/14 cm unless otherwise noted.
