Double daffodils are long lasting and come in a variety of colours and combinations. Many have a strong fragrance compared with standard daffodils. While some varieties have weak stems and therefore a tendency to flop in windy conditions, many are stronger and are perfect for growing in pots or cutting for fragrant vase displays.
