we need to decide on a shipping date. please tell me the latest you would want to receive your bulbs.
i do need to go ahead and order as soon as i see what we want so that is why we are starting early. Payment will be due early august or september if we decide on that month to ship.

Most of these daffs are hardy in zones 3 to 9. Blushing Lady says zone 4 -9. and Slim Whitman says 8. Constantinople is a paperwhite..zones 8-10.
If you like others from adr lmk and we can add them. Here are my picks.


DAFFODILS.......3 for 3.60 or.... 6 for 6.00 or .....12 for 10.00


Blushing Lady

DAFFODILS........3 for 3.00 or..........6 for 5.00 or.........12 for 8.00

we can get anything you want from adr. these were my picks due to the zones. for once i wanted to highlight just the ones that grew all over.

but if you want another bulb write it in over on the other thread.......the one with lycoris and iris..........we'll keep this one only for daffs.

I've dealt with ADR for several years now, and you're going to love their bulbs! We're putting together another group buy this fall, so I'll probably resist this sale, but I can't resist adding my 2 cents. I've grown a lot of the varieties they carry!

Other than paperwhites, most narcissus grow just fine in the north. It's finding varieties that perform well in the south that's tricky, as many of them need a minimum number of chilling hours to form blooms.

'Carlton', 'St. Keverne' and 'Ice Follies' are all wonderful yellow daffs for the south. They've good naturalizers / multipliers for me. My MIL says you can never go wrong planting 'Ice Follies'. She has a big patch that bloom every Easter for her in NC.

All the tazettas do well in the south and are also excellent for forcing, requiring little to no cold period. They're also fragrant! Paperwhites are tazettas, but the non-paperwhite members of this class seem to be more sweet and less musky in their fragrance. Paperwhites are not hardy, but tazettas are fine as cold as zone 5 and maybe further with good mulching.

'Geranium' is a personal favorite among the tazetta daffs, flowering mid-season for me. Consider adding 'Cheerfulness' or 'Yellow Cheerfulness' with it for a similar look (several small flowers on a stem) that flowers later in the season. If you can find 'Avalanche', that's an early-season tazetta. These are all heirlooms, so you know they are good multipliers. :-)

I found a list in a Southern living article:
"Surefire Daffodils for the South
These daffodils bloom dependably in most areas and increase with little care: ‘Avalon’, ‘Carlton’, ‘February Gold’, ‘Geranium’, ‘Hawera’, ‘Ice Follies’, ‘Jack Snipe’, ‘Jetfire’, ‘Minnow’, Narcissus odorus, ‘Quail’, ‘Saint Keverne’, ‘Salome’, ‘Tête-à-tête’, ‘Thalia’, and ‘Trevithian’."

BTW, there are tulips you can grow in the south, also. Check out the little "species" types, T. saxitillus, T. tarda, T. clusianna, T. kaufmanianna, T. humilis, etc. They may not have the tall stems and stately blooms of their cousins, but I love them!

I like the little species tulips along a path where yo look down at them as you pass.
Or in a lawn, like crocuses.

i would love to have naturalizing tulips but i don't believe. i tried some once. admittedly i had no idea what i was doing at the time. put em out in the garden that texas can't kill without ever thinking of them again until they didn't come up in the spring. i would do better this time. but i think because i want them so bad i will never see them here.

once years ago when i was doing home health nursing i found myself out near lake tawakoni and saw a blanket of red across the front of a house. it was tulips. i was stunned and always meant to go back and either politely ask for some or go back at night to get some but they transferred me away from that area and i never went back. i have tried to find it again. so either i was on lsd and imagined it all or tulips don't live here long.

I`ll take 36 paperwhites

I was excited about the S.Living article when it first came out and thought maybe there was hope. But, it`s that "most" areas, they don`t include us. Me, and most gardeners I know on the island, have tried heirlooms, "never-fail", etc but have never found a daffodil that will grow here more then a year or 2. I am resigned to not being able to grow certain things and sticking with tropicals and semi-tropicals. Beats snow in the winter.

Those may have been an annual planting of tulips, I have seen them put in in Dallas several times. Noone in Houston puts in tulips, they even make a lousy annual here.

It always surprises me to be reminded that tulips don't come back.
Mine always have, except for the years the deer got in and ate them all.

Y'all tried "Bulbtone"?
Garden writer here highly recommends it.

maybe they were but they didn't look it. the ground hadn't been disturbed in forever it looked like. they really looked naturalized as they were scattered around here and there. among the tree roots. coolest looking thing i ever saw.

beachplant..........REMIND ME when ship time comes and i want to send a few of my zone 9 bulbs and you can report back next spring whether they grew or not. how bout that?

critterg i almost never feed anything here. one of these years when i am more organized than i am now i am going to feed everything and water 3 x a week just to see. Rolling on the floor laughing
