For naysayers who claim daffodils won't thrive in areas with lots of heat Grand Primo proves otherwise. This hard to find historic variety lives and continues to flower profusely for decades. Scott Ogden, author of Garden Bulbs for the South says, "Certainly no finer bulbs are available for Southerners than these old narcissi now known as 'Grand Primo'. They are by far the most vigorous, persistent, and floriferous members of their genus. 'Grand Primo' is so extraordinarily tough that it thrives even in the heaviest clay." Wow, now that's an endorsement and from a long time Texas gardening expert. We'll also add that this daffodil performs exceptionally well in less harsh environments; the above photo and the Image Gallery ones were taken in San Diego County.
