I ordered these online because they were advertised as fragrant, and found out months later when they bloomed that I don't like the fragrance! I would encourage people to smell fragrant plants in person before buying.

I moved to a new home and immediately started planting specialty daffodils, Replete, Apricot Whirl, Orangerie...I also grabbed a mixed bag of double daffodils at Lowes for fun. Well, "Cheerfullness" happened to be in the mixed bag and it was my favorite of all the daffodils I planted. The fragrance is so lovely and powerful, I am anxious to dig up the clumps and plant in more gardens. I planted it in my "cold" garden, morning sun, shade all afternoon...the plants there grow and bloom later than the rest of my gardens. Last of the daffodils to bloom, blooms last 1-2 weeks...a delicate stunner in the garden!
I planted these bulbs two years ago. The first year they bloomed fine, but since then, the buds seem to dry out and turn papery before blooming. They're planted in half sun along a driveway. I plant annuals there during the summer, so they do get watered.

A good week-plus later to bloom than the other Daffodils in the bed, this one also has more petite blooms; fairly fragrant
