Peruvian Daffodils (Hymenocallis narcissiflora, Syn. H. calathina, Ismene calathina)

I bought 2 more Peruvian Daffodils this spring and with the 2 I bought last year, they seemed to last forever ! The last one just faded away today.

Amy, they're well worth you trying again ! Make sure you water them daily during their growth period. In fact, in 1998 I purchased one and was told to put it in my pond ! It did great in there too. Then for winter I allowed the pot to dry out a bit and then I removed them from the dirt and put them in a box of peat moss slightly dampened, and kept them in a cool dark place all winter.
