Growing Narcissus Flowers

I found a lot of different information on these flowers so I'm just going to share with you the bits and pieces that I found the most helpful.

USDA Hardiness Zones: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Sun exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun

"Planting techniques vary and every gardener has his or her own preferences, but if you're planting small clusters of bulbs, whether in an existing garden bed or in the woods, lawn, or elsewhere, one of the easiest ways to do it is to dig a hole a foot or so in diameter and 6-8 in. deep. Then plant five or six bulbs together in the hole, spacing the individual bulbs at least a hand's width apart"

"Like most perennials, daffodils will do well with about 1 inch of water per week while they're actively growing and blooming---from March to May, or thereabouts. And, as is the case for other plants, mulch can be tremendously helpful in conserving what moisture you do receive (or provide). Unlike most perennials, daffodils actually prefer no supplemental water when they're dormant, during the summer months. In the fall, 1in. or less of water a week will be sufficient to help the bulbs generate new root growth. Come winter, nature generally takes care of things itself, both by providing either snow or rain, depending on where you live, and by freezing the ground solid throughout much of the country."    -Source
