Daffodil #3: Jetfire

This is Jetfire. One of the three named daffodils that I planted a few years ago. It has thrived so far, second only to one that was on the property when we moved here. Each year the clumps increase in size and they flower freely. The bright yellow and orange flowers provide some welcome color after a long winter of browns and greens.

This year they were in full bloom when we had several inches of snow. Both foliage and blooms were completely buried. I thought that was the end of them for this year. Everything was flattened. Slowly they straightened up, not as tall as they were originally, and provided bright color for several weeks.

Jetfire began blooming on February 24th.
