Daffodils

Parent Category: Plants and Flowers
Daffodils are hardy, spring blooming flowers in the Amaryllis family. They are also known as the Narcissus. Questions about the propagation, planting, maintenance, trouble shooting, harvesting, and enjoyment, as well as their regions, growing conditions, light requirements, and more about Daffodils are asked and answered in this category.
Most daffodils do not depend on pollinators because they have been  so hybrid that their flowers no longer attract insects. Most  breeders hand pollinate daffodils and have to wait five to seven  years to see if their cross is a good one. There are some varieties  that still attract insects.
After the daffodil flowers have faded, the plant needs to  restore the nutrients that were used, so it can bloom the next  year. The leaves must remain as stay green for this to happen. It  takes about 4 weeks. When the leaves begin to turn yellow, you can  cut the leaves off. 
They got the word daffodil from the french name daflodia which  means sun of flower.

The ASPCA puts out a list of what is toxic to specific animals.  For a hamster, daffodils are very toxic. A wild animal will  inheritly know what not to eat, but a hamster is a domesticated  animal. A vase of daffodils or getting into the bulbs will cut his  life short. 
The daffodil flower lasts about a week. It's the same whether youpick for a vase or leave it on the plant. The daffodil season hasearly, mid and late bloomers. The season lasts about 8 weeks,though some of the new cultivars push it to 10 weeks of bloom.
  Yes. Daffodils can cause vomiting and diarrhea in cats that eat any part of the plant, be it leaves, pods, or flowers.
The daffodil is the national flower of Wales. The national flower of Wales is the daffodil, which is traditionally worn on St. David's Day. The vegetable called leek is also considered to be a traditional emblem of Wales.
Because they are cool and totally amazing :D
Short answer: the daffodil blooms in the spring.   Things that can affect bloom time:    Daffodils cultivars can be early, mid or late season  bloomers.  Also the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone has to be considered.  Another variable is the soil temp. Has it been a normal, long  or short...

The daffodil makes energy in the same manner as other plants.Photosynthesis is a process that converts light energy (from thesun) into chemical energy (sugar) that can be utilized to supportthe plant's tissues. It is also stored in the bulb for the nextyear's growth and flowering needs.
The hart's-tongue fern (Asplenium scolopendrium) has the following  classification:    Kingdom: Plantae  Division: Pteridophyta (vascular plants reproducing by  spores)  Class: Polypodiopsida (ferns)  Order: Polypodiales  Family: Aspleniaceae  Genus: Asplenium   The daffodil has the...
A herbaceous plant has leaves and stems that die and leave notrace at the end of the growing season. That accurately describesthe growth pattern of a daffodil.
Actually according to Robert Scotland, plant scientist in Oxford  (England), nobody really knows much at all about the trumpet, and  that is the point of the research he is currently foin along with  Peter Endress in Zurich and scientists at Kew Gardens. Obviously it  must have something to do...

Daffodil bulbs should be planted in the fall months before the  ground freezes. Why autumn when it's a spring flower?    The bulb must be exposed to cold temperatures for the formation  of the flower bud.  The bulb roots should be established prior to freezing  temperatures.  To break...
It feeds the animals. Happy to help.
There are more than 25,000 varieties of daffodils today. Some don'treally look like daffodils anymore. Generally a daffodil will have these characteristics: . Base of flower is fused into a funnel or tube shape. . The flower will have a central corona called a cup or trumpetwhich can have a variety...
Daffodils have two ways to reproduce: . Asexually by bulbs producing clones of the parent plant. . Sexually through seeds producing new and interestinghybrids. For the home gardener, it is best to grow the daffodils from bulbs,so that you'll know what you're getting. Removing the seed podswill...

As a perennial it can be left in the ground for between 5 and 10 years. Although clumps that become large, may be divided as and when necessary. Divide in early summer after the foliage has turned yellow. They can be put into onion sacks and stored in a cool place until ready for re planting
Daffodils may be all one color (self-colored) or a variety of  colors where the perianth (petals) and corona (cup or trumpet) may  be different or may contain more than one color or shade. Breeders,  or hybridizers, of the daffodil are constantly working to create  new and usual colors by...
  it provides the cut flower energy it would other wise get from the leaves
The daffodil has long flat leaves that are close to the flower  bearing stem.   Daffodils have to compete with its neighbors for available light,  and it needs as much light as it can get to make food for the plant  tissues and have enough left over to store in the bulb for next  year's plant...
As a perennial flower, they die back in late spring and then flower again early in the following year
Daffodils can be dug up in late May, or after the foliage has died  back. Wash the bulbs and let them dry. Store in an onion sack in a  cool, ventilated place and re- plant in autumn. If you wish to move  them in 'green leaf', carefully dig up bulbs taking as much soil as  possible (dont clean...
Daffodils can be harmful to a horse, if too much is eaten.
The actual daffodil flower grows out of the bulb on its own stalk. There are no leaves attached to this stalk. The daffodil bulb can put up a variable number of leaves each year. The number depends on the size of the bulb. The larger the bulb, the more leaves it needs to produce food to support the...
Flowers that grow from bulbs are usually very hardy and they  multiply. It could be that an animal dragged a bulb there or  someone planted them and then just let them go.
When the daffodil flower has died, you will notice that the area where flower has attached to the stem swells larger and larger. It is producing seeds. If you plant the seeds, it can take 3-4 years for the seeds to develop into bulbs which produce the daffodil plants. Bulbs are necessary to store...
Trees are deciduous, daffodils are perennials and the foliage dies  back late May.

Plants that have a stem with a tip (aka shot, sucker, twig) or a  node, can be taken from the parent plant and rooted. This is a form  of asexual reproduction or cloning. The requirement is a stem. With  plants such as daffodils, tulips and such, the preferred asexual  proprogation is bulb...
You can do this when they obviously become overcrowded, every five to ten years, Divide the clumps of bulbs in early summer after the foliage has turned brown
After the daffodil flowers have faded, the plant needs to restore  the nutrients that were used, so it can bloom the next year. The  leaves must remain as stay green for this to happen. It takes about  4 weeks. When the leaves begin to turn yellow, you can cut the  leaves off.
Cut the flowers (and a portion of the stem so the plants look better) right after the flowers have died. You don't want them wasting their energy producing seeds when they should be storing food in their bulbs for next year's growth. Let those leaves produce that storage food until they've turned...
The daffodil symbolizes rebirth and Spring. It is also the national emblem of Wales.   The Daffodil is a symbol for the Marie Curie Cancer Club.
Daffodils represent the beauty of nature in the poem.they express wealth,good fortune,hope,happiness,faith etc in the poem.
Forever is a long time, but I can guarentee that daffodils live for  quite a spell. In fact, it's pretty hard to kill a daffodil bulb.  Have you ever seen a batch of daffodils that look like they are  surrounding something that is not there. Long after a house has  fallen to ruin the daffodils...
No need to cover them but they may need to be supported against 'falling over'
Yes, they have leaves. They use these leaves to manufacture food that bulb below the soil can store for the production of next year's plants. That's why it's important not to remove the leaves after the flower dies. The leaves should be removed only after they have yellowed and withered.
The main theme of this poem is happiness and feelings of joy inspired by nature that we may have neglected due to our busy lives. The writer expresses how he's wandering alone and then suddenly sees a group of daffodils and how they are blowing so beautifully in the wind, and the sight of that makes...

daffodils live in the plain feilds of europe.
The normal yellow daffodil lasts for 8-10 days. They grow anywhere where there is enough soil, energy and water.
Daffodils can be found in what is called the "temperate zone". They need a period of cold for the flowers to bloom properly. They do well in the USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 3-9. They can be growing wild in a meadow, pasture or lakeside, or they can be a cultivated ornamental type grown in gardens...
Short answer: NO, daffodils come in a variety of colors. Daffodils may be all one color (self-colored) or a variety ofcolors where the perianth (petals) and corona (cup or trumpet) maybe different or may contain more than one color or shade. Breeders,or hybridizers, of the daffodil are constantly...

Plant migration has to do with seed dispersal. The answer fordaffodils is very rarely. If the plant does produce seed (this is very inefficient for a bulbplant), the seed will burst from the ovule and fall among theleaves of the same plant. For them to be dispersed, it would take asquirrel or some...
Daffodils are natives of southern Spain and Portugal , North Africa  and West Asia. They could be found in meadows and woods. Today most  of the daffodils are developed, produced and exported from Holland,  and the United Kingdom is the leader in using and exporting cut  daffodil flowers. They...

Daffodils grow in the spring from a bulb. They do have seeds, but it takes a good five years to get a flower from a daffodil seed, so most people plant the bulbs. They need to be in a well drained area, in sun or partial shade, and the bulb can adapt to most soils. Once the temperature is right, the...
A producer or autotroph (self + feeding) is an organism that  produces complex products from simple substances in its  environment. Simply put, they make their own food. Autotrophs  include plants, algae and many bacteria. Since a daffodil is a  plant, and it uses light energy to make food to...
The majesty and beauty of Nature's creations will imprint their permanent mark on the mind of a poet. The unending stretch of Daffodils will undoubtedly create in a poet's mind the notion, how talented the creator is, to unroll a fine carpet of lovely flowers for the human eyes to see. A painter...
The main idea of William Wordsworth's "I Wandered Lonely as aCloud" (aka "Daffodils") is the return to nature. He focuses on thedaffodils. He personifies them. They gave him comfort and joy onthe first day he saw them, and they do the same several years laterwhen he remembers the dancing yellow...
Unless you live in an area that does not turn cold in the winter,it is best not to disturb the bulb and just leave it where it is.Of course, if the clump is old, or the spot has become shady, itwould be better to pull the bulbs and transplant them prior to theground becoming frozen. September is a...
