Daffodil Rot

Hello, Quick question to anyone that can share some information concerning daffodils. I have alot of Daffodils that look like carnations when they open. However they never open. They bud, then the buds dry up and rot. Anyone have any ideals on this matter ?? Causes, etc.
Thanks in advance,,,,,,,,,,,Steve snipped-for-privacy@usa.com

This is called "blasting", and I've had scads of them. They are "doubles" (maybe quadraploid or hexaploid, I'm not sure). Some years they do fair, other years poor. My theory is that all the extra surface area in the flower greatly increases evaporation, and hot dry weather bakes them out real fast, but a cool wet Spring may put on a good show. You could try putting them somewhere that gets shade in the hot midday, but my current MO is to dispose of anything that doesn't do well in the local climate. There are newer double varieties that bloom better, you probably have one of the old poor ones.
I say dig 'em and try something else. If you like daffs, there are plenty of better varieties available. Rick, NW OH
