Daffodils: A Brief History
The ancestral daffodils were from around the Mediterranean Sea areas near Spain, Portugal and the Middle East. Some of the earliest records mentioning daffodils were in about 200/300 BC , and the first writings about daffodils were in about 6th century AD. The daffodil was a typically a forgotten wild plant until around 1629 when a group of Englishmen plucked them out of the weeds and planted them in their gardens placing the forgotten plant into focus once again.
