Blooms early; good for forcing!

4-inch spread and long, jutting trumpet make 'King Alfred Improved' the star of garden and vase!
Since 1899 'King Alfred' has been the world's best-loved Daffodil, and our selection is an improvement on the classic! 16 to 18 inches tall, vigorous, and better than ever with a 4-inch perianth. Single, early-spring blooms whose coronas ("trumpets") are as long as or even longer than their perianths ("petals"). The all-time classic!

Our high-quality bulbs each produce at least two strong flower stems--providing immediate satisfaction the first year and even more as they increase over the years. Plant about 5 bulbs per square foot. Great for forcing. Zones 3-8.
