The Daffodil and Tulip are synonymous with spring throughout most of the world. They are among the most widely grown bulbs in the home garden as well as for the commercial cut flower trade.
Many millions of blooms are sold annually. The Daffodil has been a garden classic since ancient times. Greek legend says that Echo, the daughter of Earth and Air, fell in love with Narcissus.
