With the clocks springing forward this past weekend, it only seems fitting that today’s flower should help to represent the “spring” season we’ve all been so eagerly waiting for.  Daffodils, also referred to as Narcissus, are one of the first flowers to bloom in springtime and can be found between March and end of May {but if imported from Europe can be available as early as October}.  Because they are so readily available here in the US, they are also an inexpensive addition to your florals and decor.

One interesting fact I learned about these lovely blooms while doing my research is that Daffodils have sap which is toxic to other flowers, so it is recommended that you leave them in water on their own for at least 12 hours before mixing with other flowers and do not recut the stems. There is also specially formulated cut flower food available for mixing daffodils with other flowers.  I never would have thought that!

Daffodils are the symbol of new beginnings and friendship, and are available in over 25,000 varieties of yellow, white, orange and if you search hard enough, even a peachy pink.

Though not a common wedding flower, after some digging, I actually found some lovely inspiration that surprised me, and I’m of course excited to share with you today!  {And with the recent trend of bright yellows and muted grays, Daffodils are a perfect way to bring in that pop of color}.

    Who knew?! Sensational Spring-esque post Jacin!

  • Katie Smith says on March 14, 2011 Reply

    Yup! I read that a long time ago, and heard it from a couple florists, too! Daffodils are one of my favorite flowers of all time :) I say it goes back to the Greek legend of Narcissus :) Pretty to look at(himself)but it made him waste away to nothing. Much like daffodils do to other flowers, narcissistic people can poison others because of self consumption. Deceptive little flowers!

    Just a little food/analogy for thought ;)

    Daffodils are so incredibly gorgeous without being too much of a flower. They are understated yet still delicate. I'm in LOVE.

    I had no idea daffodils were toxic to other flowers-fascinating! My parents' garden has a big daffodil patch, and I loved putting oversized bunches of them in my sunny yellow bedroom in the springtime!
