Daffodils Overplanted with Poppies and Larkspur

Daffodils Overplanted with Poppies and Larkspur

In late fall when I planted the Daffodil bulbs, I scattered seeds of Corn Poppies, Peony Poppies and Larkspur for a cottage garden effect when the daffodil blooms are gone. It takes several weeks for daffodil foliage to ripen and the annual plants will effectively hide the bulb leaves with blooms above.

When the flowers fade in early summer, I can plant summer annuals like Zinnias or Tithonia for the delight of butterflies.
