This one has been a surprise for me. It just keeps returning and blooming every year. I have them growing in the lawn shaded half the day by the house. It is growing well in North Louisiana. Recommended by the Master Gardeners in Tyler, Texas. White petals with a small red rimmed yellow cup. A very elegant addition to your late bloomers.

N. Aflame
A lovely heirloom that is growing good in north Louisiana. It has thick creamy white overlapping petals. The cup is a deep orange with gold at the base. The pollen parent is N. Hades 2W-R a Mrs. R.O. Backhouse hybrid from 1921. Blooms are one to a stem. Tall and blooms early for a division 3. We need more feedback from the lower parts of zone 8 but it is growing good in the upper part of zone 8.

Small bright yellow cups. Very tough and easy to grow. We have them in the lawn. Will make large clumps. Fragrant. Larger Photo's in Photo Gallery

A nice large flower that is growing across the south. Even grows in Florida. White petals with a deep orange cup that has a hint of yellow in it.  It can take heavier soils and our heat. I have this one planted in the lawn with some shade.

This is another daffodil that should be in every planting. Growing in Florida and was recommended in the 1955 Louisiana State University  daffodil trial. A tough daffodil that resist fading. Yellow pointed petals with bright orange cups complete the heirloom look. There are several large clumps of these at an old home site in town surviving under the deciduous shrubs with no care. Multiplies.

We have seen these daffodils growing outside of town on the site where the old mansion once stood. These would have been planted over 50 years ago and are still blooming in large clumps with no care. It is a large, tough daffodil. One of the best perennial daffodils for the south - no mansion required. Larger Photo's in photo gallery.

A great choice for anywhere in the south. This one can grow in Florida. Yellow petals with orange cups. The rim on the cup is a deep orange. Color does not fade. Happier with some afternoon shade. I have seen clumps of these in full sun and under shrubs. Larger photo's in photo gallery.

A proven perennial daffodil that is often overlooked for the northern parts of zone 8. Has a very curly yellow cup with lighter yellow overlapping petals. One of the brightest colors and it almost looks double. 

Zones 8-10                            10"-12"  tall         very early

I love yellow daffodils with orange cups and this one is a doll. Round yellow petals with a bright orange rim on the large cup. Has been growing good in North Louisiana and check out the photos in the Gallery of it in trial just north of Houston, Texas. Very Showy. Larger Photo's in photo gallery.
