Daffodils Division 13
SPECIES AND WILD FORMS Use: eclectic and adventuresome
This division contains daffodil species and wild forms or reputedly wild forms distinguished solely by botanical name. Be forewarned, however, as most species daffodil bulbs are no larger than the tip of your little finger. Like hybrid daffodils, the wild ones will also force. All are commercially propagated.
