These daffodils had naturalized on this tree stump!
Everywhere I looked, there were daffodils!
I left them alone for a few weeks....and trust me...it was hard! I didn't want to dig them up while they were blooming. At the end of January I went back, shovel in hand, and got to work. This was not an easy task! These daffodils were in such massive clumps, that they were extremely hard to dig up....but I was bound and determined to take them home with me. Some of them were up to 24" deep!
I carried the heavy duty lawn garbage bags with me. I dug up enough daffodils to fill 5 of those bags!
I planted all that I could, and what I couldn't plant I gave away!
I soon realized that there were 5 different types of daffodils!
The white one shown is a Minor Monarque
This one is Rijnveld's Early Sensation.
It will be the first one to bloom...thus the name!
Others included Butter & Eggs
Sorry, I was not able to find my photos of the last two. I do have one more daffodil that I was not able to identify, nor could anyone else that I emailed it to. I used Old House Gardens, and Jason from Petals From the Past to help me identify those four. It was not an easy task since there are 6000+ daffodils! I would have been happy with a name or not. I think it was an AMAZING find.
The daffodils are already sprouting up, and come January they will be blooming. I tried to mark where I had planted them...but it will be a surprise all over again when they bloom! I can't wait to see their pretty little faces again!
