I have an old flower bed in which the large daffodil clumps bloom spectacularly each spring, but after the flowers fade, the leaves grow some and last for a couple of months before they also die. They aren't very attractive. What is the best method to disguise or hide them? Here are some options I've looked into:
- plant throughout the daffodils a similar leaved plant that flowers during the time the leaves of the daffodils are up
- plant various narrow leaved clump forming plants in with the daffodils for some variety
- cut the leaves off at ground level (I've heard this damages the next seasons blooms)
- flatten the leaves onto the ground and grow annuals through them
- plant something tall in front of them
I've discovered all of these methods, but don't know which one is most natural looking.
