Do not have a picture to share because I do not have any Peruvian Daffodils, I saw pictures of them on the internet when I was just looking around, I sure did take note of them and will be looking for them at my local nursery in the spring. If you have these then you know what they look like, if you don`t do a Google search and take a look!

I had them in my garden in California and I agree, they are gorgeous. But not cold hardy. Are you planning to grow them in a pot?

Yup, they are indeed lovely Lovey dubby I have them here but I find it hard to keep up with watering and our heat is too intense for it. But it sure feels like a jackpot when it manages to bloom. This year as much watering I did was not enough, our summer heat wave durations was much longer this year.

But in previous years, it did good Smiling

Hmmm, thought I just plant bulbs like the regular Daffodils I have that come up every year, I will have to research for my climate before I look for them in the spring.

Oh how pretty! Now others have a visual I could not provide.

I've been growing Peruvians for a couple of decades in pots that are over-wintered in the basement.

Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Thanks, sounds like a great idea for me. I wonder if it will be hard to find them if they are not in my zone, if not I can order online.

@Freedombelle, @Kousa is offering some smaller bulbs for postage. She mentioned that they should bloom in 2 years. You should take her up on her offer. As mentioned they have lovely blooms. nodding
