March brings to mind warm weather, St. Patrick’s Day and March Madness, but let’s talk about March’s birth flower, the daffodil. Some people associate the daffodil with new beginnings since it blooms at the start of spring. Its sturdy stem and bright yellow or white petals of various sizes make it the perfect addition to floral arrangements. Although it’s native to Western Europe, the daffodil fares well in North American gardens. Now that you’ve learned a little about the daffodil, check out what’s going on this weekend in the Triad.
