Daffodil (Narcissus) - 'Tete-a-Tete'

These were in a small pot of forced bulbs that I bought in late winter around Easter time 2007. Once they were done I planted the bulbs, some on each side of the walk near the steps. They settled right in and I had lots of flowers the following spring.

So eager to bloom, this extra-early daffodil sometimes can be seen peeking through the snow! Diminutive, soft yellow flowers are accented by a slightly darker cup. Excellent for naturalizing and in the front of borders. Multiple blooms per stem. Zones 3-8. 12-14 cm bulbs. Deer Resistant. Height: 6-8". Blooms: Early Spring

This planting is in the Borders garden .
