Email question:
quote:
We planted daffidils in our front yard a couple of years ago, and they come up every spring. We live in Illinois zone 5, and for some reason they are sprouting up. Some of them are 4 to 5 inches tall. We have had several nights down in the 20's and 30's, but still they are coming up. We're afraid they will freeze this winter and die. This is the first time they have come up in the winter.

Daffodils are extremely hardy so I don't think you have anything to worry about. Mine usually start coming up in early February when it's below freezing quite often, but they always make it through the cold to bloom in spring. Yours will most likely stop growing when it gets colder and stays colder for a long period of time.
