The Q&A Archives: Extending Blooming Times Of Daffodils

Question: I recently moved to N.E. Pa and deer eating everything is a depressing thing. Daffodils are the only thing they don't eat. Are there any types that bloom at later times.

I have seen tulips that are early and later and latest. Are there anything like that for daffodils?

Answer: Yes, there are early, middle and late season daffodils. Some later bloomers include poeticus types and some of the triandrus group such as "Thalia" which is also very fragrant. For more detailed information on daffodils of all kinds, you might check into the American Daffodil Society web site: and possibly contact a local chapter.
