Daffodil, ‘Cheerfulness’ 

‘Cheerfulness’ is one of the very few really sweetly scented Daffodil you can buy, with lovely creamy white double flowers, too. ‘Cheerfulness’ is an heirloom variety, grown since 1923. It has creamy white petals with white centers flecked with yellow. These double flowers have a sweet, musky fragrance. The double flowers more closely resemble a gardenia than a daff and occur in clusters atop strong stems. The wonderfully spicy fragrance multiplies easily. Deer resistant. Plant in groups where they can be left undisturbed for a beautiful display year after year. Flowering March to April.

Daffodils are ideal for naturalizing (they bloom every spring) and may be planted anywhere in your landscape, in sun or shade, along borders, in groups along a fence or around a tree or mailbox. Daffodils look best in mass plantings. They make good container plants and are delightful cut flowers.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: The product should be planted immediately after received in the fall. In extremely warm climates, plant when the ground cools. You may plant earlier or later as long as the ground is not too warm or frozen. 1. Dig a hole 3-4 inches deep or 2 times the height of the bulb. 2. Set the bulbs firmly in place, with the pointed ends facing upward. 3. Cover the bulbs with soil and water thoroughly. Grow in informal groupings of 5 or more bulbs. Plant bulbs in fall 3-4 inches deep or 2 times the height of the bulb and 5" apart in well-drained soil with plenty of humus. Remove old flowers leaving as much stem and foliage as possible until they die down.
