Ninety percent of the bulbs in home flower gardens belong to just 6 genera: Narcissus, Tulipa, Hyacinthus, Iris, Lilium and Gladiola.
Paper White Narcissus bulbs are easy to grow indoors and provide clusters of highly perfumed white flowers.
William Wordsworth immortalized the daffodil through his poetry. This time of year, Wordsworth's daffodils are blooming.
March 1st is Saint David's Day, a Welsh holiday. What better way to commemorate the holiday than with a discussion of Wales' national flower, the daffodil?
After the holidays, gardeners often seek tender bulbs that bloom indoors such as the Paper White Narcissus. They will light up our homes and hearts in winter.
"Bread is but food for the body, whereas narcissus is food for the soul."
