Daffodil, ‘Jetfire’

To create a sea of spring-time color plant a choice daffodil variety such as ‘Jetfire’. It is a unique free-blooming variety with lovely orange-red cups surrounded by backwards curved petals. This is a dwarf bi-color that stays in the eight to twelve inch range of height, ten inches being average. The intensely yellow perianth surrounds an even darker yellow trumpet that ages to orange-red. The trumpet is thinly ruffled, & the perianth is reflexed. This strong performer is excellent for naturalizing and it will come back more lush and beautiful each year. The blossoms last up to 4 weeks and appear in very early spring.

‘Jetfire’ bulbs, once planted, can remain in the ground for many years. They will multiply and produce the most abundant flowering results in the 2nd and 3rd year. If necessary, very large clumps of bulbs can be lifted as soon as the leaves wither, and then they can be divided and replanted as soon as possible. After flowering, let the leaves yellow before cutting them back. The plants are deer, rabbit, and squirrel resistant.

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.
