Daffodils are another really easy to grow perennial that are one of the first to bloom in the spring.

Unlike tulips, they grow well even with the warmer winter weather where I live, and the squirrels don’t like them! Which means they actually stay where you plant them.

Plant the bulbs about 6″ deep in the fall and you’ll have beautiful spring flowers for many years to come.

The leaves can be a little unsightly after the flowers have finished, so planting the bulbs with later blooming plants is a good idea.

If you are not a huge fan of yellow (I’m with you!), newer varieties come in shades of pink or white.
