Every spring the early daffodils and crocus pop up in my garden to signal the start of a new season. I never tire of seeing the bright colors emerge. Although the local deer will eat my yew bushes, rhododendrons, holly and their favorite – tulips, they never touch the daffodils or crocus.
I suggest you plant them in large groups in the fall in a position where they will be taken over by the foliage of spring perennials such as daylillies, hosta, taller sedums, geraniums, etc. and let them brighten your springs for years to come.
