    daffodils just don’t last long. A couple of weeks at most. At least in NJ

    How long have you had them? Daffodils in the ground always go dormant until next year. When yours are dry, take the bulbs out and plant them in the ground....may have to wait till fall to plant them.

    Hi Sue,

    This is normal for a daffodil once it's bloomed. When the color drains from the leaves it's actually nourishing the bulb. Once all of the leaves have turned yellow or brown and fallen off, you can take the bulb out of the pot, dry it, then plant it outside in the fall. If the daffodil came in a pot, it was most likely forced to bloom and even if you plant it outside, it might not come back but it might. Wishing you the best.
