There's still time to plant daffodils! There are large-cupped, trupet-shaped and petite daffodils...there are white ones, yellow ones and mixed colored ones. It doesn't really matter, they're all pretty. I'd just go to a nursery and buy whatever they have that you like (Home Depot should still have some if you can't find them anywhere else).
Here are a few pointers...
- daffs like full sun,
- dig your hole 2x as deep as the bulb (to save time dig a large hole and plant several in it) and
- plant it pointy end
downup. (planting daffs today I thought, "the pointy end goes up!" duh...roots down, growing end up...yep...duh)
- Give it some bulb fertilizer.
- After they bloom, cut off the spent flower, but don't cut off the foliage until it starts to yellow...it's busy making food to get the bulb ready for next year.
