Summer Cheer Daffodil adds charm and fragrance to the garden and cut-flower arrangements. Growing 10-12 in. tall, Summer Cheer produces clusters of fragrant, 1-in. ivory flowers that have just a touch of yellow. They're sure to light up front borders, patio containers or cut-flower arrangements. Unlike many other daffodils, Summer Cheer can be planted in the spring, about 6-8 weeks before blooming in the summer, after other daffodils have faded.

  • Comments: The Tazetta are a special group of daffodils that are highly-suited for indoor forcing. They are very fragrant and a joy to have blooming in your house during the dark days of Winter. They have several blooms per stem with small flowers, short cups and rounded petal tips. Can be grown outdoors in milder areas. To grow indoors, plant bulbs 2 inches deep in early Autumn and plunge in a cold frame outdoors until roots appear. Bring into the greenhouse and gradually increase the temperature. Water freely and feed with weak high potassium fertilizer once a week. Bring into the house once flower buds appear. Forced bulbs are best discarded after flowering. Daffodils, natives of Europe, are immune to most diseases and pests including gophers and deer! They are easy to grow in semi-shade to full sun. Plantings are extremely long-lived in areas where they are suited. Almost all daffodils naturalize easily, although some varieties are especially noted for this characteristic. Plant lots of different types for continued bloom and mass color.
