Daffodil foliage still not died back

Does anyone else still have green daffy foliage? Mine bloom in March, but it seems to take forever for the leaves to die back. They're almost done, but not quite. I have daffodil foliage next to blooming dahlias!

Mine is on the ground and mostly yellow....yaaah, finally :)

RE: Daffodil foliage still not died back

Mine are falling to the ground now. They will start to turn yellow soon, I hope.

My garden is so stuffed that new plants and flowers draw attention away from the daffodils.

The worst culprit is Colchicum. The leaves are bolder and last a lot longer than Daffodils. I tolerate them so I can have beautiful blossoms in late fall when everything else goes to pot.

RE: Daffodil foliage still not died back

Mine are still green, just the tips have turned yellow. My tulip leaves are still perfect, no yellowing or browning at all. Quite surprised. This is my first year of bulbs so I don't know much but I thought they'd have died back already.

RE: Daffodil foliage still not died back

If you want the bulb foliage to die back faster in the spring and early summer, choose earlier blooming bulbs, e.g. the Emperor tulips bloom earlier and ripen their foliage earlier than mid-season Triumph tulips. The same with dafffodils.
