These were planted in my garden way back in 2002 and still are coming back strong.. They were planted 6-8 inches down in clumps of 6. These start flowering in my yard in Downers Grove Illinois the 3rd week of April.. Love them!

I planted some daffodils that my grandma was thinning out, probably two years ago (2009). They haven't bloomed till this year (2011) because they are planted between our house and the next and only get early morning and mid- to late-afternoon sun. I'm not sure of the variety, but they look like this one: white perianth, white corona with some yellow.

I'm not as fond of double daffodils as I am of normal ones, so I hope to find a new home for these bulbs.

Planted the White Lion bulbs last winter. They were grown in containers, and placed where they'd get sun and rain.

They were magnificient. Fragrant and beautiful.

If these bulbs are available this year, will plant even more of them.
