DAFFODILS - So many choices for naturalizing

Daffodils are one of my favorite spring bulbs for many reasons:  Many of them naturalize well in the garden, their nodding blooms are one of the first to bloom in spring, there are many different varieties to choose from, they are extremely hardy, and, a very important reason for me--deer don't bother them!

This week's arrangement features 10 of my favorites:

(From top, in order)  Tahiti, Las Vegas, Ice King, Pink Charm, King Alfred, Chromacolor, Snow Frills, Flower Drift, Blonde Beauty, and Replete. All are 16-20" tall and provide early to mid-spring blooms.

Paired with rosy blooms from the thick stalks of Heart Leaf Bergenia, this spring arrangement will last a week. Cut blooms in the early morning before the sun comes out, and plunge in treated water before arranging. Keep arrangements out of direct sunlight and drafts. 

Spring has definitely arrived when the daffodils are in bloom!
