Plant the 2014 Bulb of the Year from Longfield Gardens in fall for bright garden color in spring

Crowned 2014 flower bulb of the year, Trumpet daffodils are beloved for their classic shape and style.

The magic of flower bulbs is that they’re easy to plant in fall, require virtually no maintenance and then when spring emerges so do the colorful blooms.

Searching for a fresh, bold burst of spring color? Look no further than Trumpet daffodils. Crowned 2014 flower bulb of the year, the Trumpet steps into the spotlight this fall.

Trumpet daffodils are beloved for their classic shape and style: huge, bright canary flowers with a prominent, extra-long cup. Plus, this daffodil is a dependable "repeater," returning year after year with more blooms.

“The Trumpet daffodil has proven to be a classic display of color that offers beautiful blooms each year,” says Marlene Thompson, creative director for Longfield Gardens.

Like all spring-blooming flower bulbs, the time to plant the Trumpet daffodil is in fall. To create a spectacular sea of color, plant these bulbs in mass. Come spring, flower bulbs will explode with vibrant blooms while most other plants are still waking up.

Trumpets are great for naturalizing, so gardeners can expect more and more vibrant blooms each year.

Find the right Trumpet daffodil from Longfield Gardens’ many unique varieties with colors ranging from bold yellow to elegant white.

The Trumpet daffodil is not only stunning on its own, but also pairs beautifully with other flower bulbs.

“Take your yard to the next level by mixing and matching Trumpet daffodils with other flower bulbs,” Thompson advises.

“One of my favorite pairings is with muscari. From light shades to deep blue blossoms and even two-toned, muscari’s miniature bells stands boldly next to the Trumpet daffodil and blooms at the same time.”

Hyacinth flowers, with their fragrant, striking blooms, also make a splash in the garden when paired with snow white Trumpet daffodils

“The magic of flower bulbs is that they’re easy to plant in fall, require virtually no maintenance and then when spring emerges so do the colorful blooms,” Thompson says.
