TheDaffodil is the March birth flower, the 10th anniversary flower, and a flower that is often associated with Spring and Easter. Daffodils are known as Jonquil or Narcissus and in different cultures are said to represent rebirth, unrequited love, wealth, luck, and vanity. If given as a gift, Daffodil’s have a meaning of friendship and happiness.
Daffodils come in all different sizes and can be used as a small focal flower or accent flower. The standard Daffodil size ranges from about 1-2 inches in diameter while the mini are closer to a half inch in diameter.
Daffodils can either come in bud form or bloomed. If the Daffodil is still in bud form, prep a bucket or vase, making sure they are clean, and then fill with a few inches of clean, cool water. Cut stems at an angle, under running water, with sharp shears or scissors and then place in the prepared bucket or vase. Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate. Keep your Daffodils away from direct sunlight, drafts, or any extreme temperatures. Change water every 24 hours if needed and make sure to check water level occasionally, since your flowers will drink a large amount of water within the first 24 hours or so.
Daffodils look great alone or can be paired with other Spring and Summer blooms like Irises, Tulips, Ranunculus, Sweet Peas and much more! Blue and purple flowers provide a beautiful contrast to the yellow Daffodil.
