Daffodils (narcissus). The classic symbols of early spring are easy to grow in most mild climates, and they can come back year after year when left in the ground. Plant in flowing drifts, spotted under trees, in borders between shrubs and perennials, or in pots. Classic yellow types that do well in mild climates include 'Dutch Master' and 'February Gold'. 'Gigantic Star' is shown here.USDA zones: 3 to 9 (find your zone)Light requirement: Full sun or light shadeMature size: 6 to 24 inches highBloom time: Generally late winter through early spring; as early as midwinter in California and other mild climatesPlanting tips for mild climates: Plant daffodils in well-cultivated soil in mid to late fall (early December is still OK). Bury bulbs at a depth that is two or three times their height, 6 to 8 inches apart. Water the bulbs after planting, and keep the soil moist through winter if rains don't do the job. After bloom time cut off faded flowers. Allow the leaves to dry (or wait at least six weeks) before removing them. You can leave the bulbs in the ground (avoid heavy summer watering) or dig and store them for next season.
If the ground has not frozen over, you still have time to plant those bulbs. Get them in the ground quickly, though. If a solid freeze has already hit your region, take advantage of those clearance bulb sales and force the bulbs indoors.
