Q.My Different Varieties Are All Starting To Look The Same

Zone 16373 | Anonymous added on April 5, 2024 | Answered

I have planted several varieties of daffodils over many years. Now most of them all look the same. Dark yellow center with cream petals. This was one variety I planted. But also all white and all yellow. They seem to be changing so they are all the same. Almost all are the bright yellow center with almost white petals. Is this possible? Are they cross pollinating?

Most likely the other varieties ae dying out and leaving the one variety, which is multiplying by bulb increases. To get more bulbs by seed, you would need to hand pollinate. The seed is too heavy to be carried by the wind, and insects do not pollinate them because there is no nectar to attract the insects.
