Narcissus ‘Ice Follies’, part of the popular “large-cupped daffodil” division, are easy perennials that boast a multitude of awards. Given their deer-resistant nature, you won’t need to worry about these beautiful flowers being eaten by your local wildlife! When planted in September or October, you can expect 3-4 inch white blooms with flared yellow centers to appear in March-April. Plant bulbs 6 inches deep and 6 inches apart in moist, well-draining soil. These flowers grow vigorously, and they can reach 16 inches at full maturity. Daffodils do best in zones 3-8 in areas where they get full sun, but they will do just fine in partial shade. Ice Follies are fantastic for naturalizing and borders, but they can also make a big impact when planted in clusters or used in cut-flower arrangements.

How to Grow Narcissi:
Plant Narcissi bulbs in the fall. Plant about two to four weeks before the ground freezes to allow the roots to develop underground. Plant them 6-8 inches deep. Space plants three to six inches apart. Note, that Narcissi will tolerate some crowding.
Sprinkle a little bulb fertilizer in the hole during planting. For established beds, spread the fertilizer on top of the soil. You can work it in lightly, but you risk damaging the bulbs. As natives to woodland areas, Narcissi will grow well in shade to full sun.
After they bloom in the spring, allow the plants to grow until they die off. They need time after blooming to store energy in the bulbs for next year. To remove the dead plant, either snip them off at the base, or twist the leaves while pulling lightly.
