March is Daffodil time and boy, do we have daffodils this year thanks to over 3,000 bulbs going in the ground this winter! Most of these harbingers of spring were planted in the Knoxville Garden Club Danae Garden and with all this warm weather they are coming up fast and strong. Among the thousands of bulbs are unique cultivars such as ‘Sir Winston Churchill’, a tall heavily fragrant double flowering variety that has been a star performer for years in the Danae Garden. Other varieties include the truly unique ‘Prototype’ with its yellow petals and nearly orange cup, ‘Sovereign’ which looks a lot like an egg over-easy, and the beautiful ‘Mary Gay Lirette’. Daffodils are one of the easiest and most rewarding of all garden plants so be sure to come to the Garden this spring to see their many colors and forms.
