Daffodil, 'Yellow Cheerfulness' 

Yellow Cheerfulness' is a perfect name for this glorious daffodil. Three or four sweetly scented blooms are produced on strong stems and are soft yellow with double trumpets. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it their prestigious 'Award of Garden Merit'. A double daffodil will give you twice the color show and they feature a double flower in which the corona and/or the petals (perianth segments) are doubled. 'Yellow Cheerfulness' is from 16-18" tall, making it a nice size in the garden.

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 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.
