Will daffodils bloom in New Jersey in February?

daffodils-feb-25-2017These are awfully close …

This photo was taken on Saturday, the third straight day that highs were in the 70s. The 70s! In February! Madness! And it nearly reached 70 last weekend. (Accuweather now claims snow will start in 52 minutes. Uh huh. And that it will be 57 tomorrow.)

A guy in my Italian class on Saturday said he spotted one blooming in his yard, so I am betting the answer to my question is yes.

Last year I noted we had five blooming on March 10, another year when we had a mild winter — and the first bloom on March 2 back in 2012. But usually they don’t emerge until the back half of March.

  1. We’ve had daffodils for almost two weeks–a feat because they are on the the north side of the house.
    The roses on the west and south have never stopped blooming this year.
