Categories: Bulb Information, Growing Daffodils

Download PDF

Friends, I’m trying to figure out which bulbs I can send to folks in the following USDA Hardiness Zones:

8B – San Jose, CA
8BCi – Gulf Coast, between Galveston & Huston  [already have St. Keverne]
10 – Los Angeles, CA
Do you have any suggestions, or a website where I could find this information? 
Thank you.  And happy weekend.

    Hi Vicky,

    Some suppliers (I think Brent and Becky’s Bulbs) have a collection of daffodils which are adapted to the Southern US.  I am guessing that would cover Zones 7 through 8 or 9. Many tazzetas do well in warmer climes, but I just don’t know about Los Angeles – Zone 10.  Maybe paperwhites would grow outside there.  I know paperwhites are raised in Israel.
