A fave spring flower: Replete Narcissus

Spring flowers are the best. They are an invitation to enjoy sunnier skies and warming days. As some of the first flowers, daffodils and narcissus are a welcome addition to any spring event, whether appearing in large arrangements, groupings of blossoms, or charming bouquets.

One of my favorites is the graceful Replete narcissus. With creamy outer-petals and centers of peachy-yellow and pastel-apricot, they are beautiful on their own, in groupings with other daffodils & tulips, or as a feature flower in a bouquet. Replete also has sturdy stems and is a great choice for early season parties and events, typically blooming in our southern Illinois USDA hardiness zone 6b from late-March to early-April.
