With proper selection of varieties daffodils can accent your garden for months. They can be forced to bloom indoors and grow well in pots.
On May 3rd I visited the Daffodil Society of Minnesota show. I present pictures from that display, I do not include names of varieties as some are collections, I want to spark your curiosity to learn more thru DSM and the American Daffodil Society.

A woodland or meadow planting of daffodils en masse is a site to behold.
In Minnesota meadow plantings are difficult as grasses tend to be too vigorous and tall.
Hope you enjoyed and are encouraged to plant daffodils!
