can i plant a daffodil bouquet without the bulbs?

my husband bought me home some gorgeous white with purple specked daffodils that are indigenous to our area and i have never seen ones like this before...they smell really fresh too. they do not have a bulb or any type of root is simply the flowers and they are all connected to one large stem and its in water. if i put his into a pot with soil will it sprout roots etc. and stay alive ?
i could swear they were tulips when i seen them, but he said the lady at the shop they are a type of daffodil from this area...the stamens really look so unique and i love the purple specks on the inside i would love ot keep these if i could. any ideas?

  • daffodils dont have bulbs. they have seeds that are right under the flower. when they start to wilt the seed pocket will get bigger. you can plant that.

  • She was just pulling your wee leg. In the land where I live all daffodils belong to the narcissus family and they have bulbs. Why not check out a daffodil nursery online and see if you can order some of those beautiful daffodil bulbs to plant in your yard?

  • Daffodils are BULBS! They are from the Narcissus family and are indigenous to Europe, North Africa, and Asia. Being that you are in Germany - (looked at profile) - you could probably find bulbs to grow the ones that you were given. But you cannot root daffodils in soil from the stem.

  • Daffodils grow from bulbs....not seeds.

    Tulips, lillies, Iris's all grow from bulbs too.
