daffodils were fighting their way heavenward.
Does it mean the daffodils blossom profusely or just mean they are flourishing? You may consult the context as below, thank u!

On May 3 that year I awake to a green so startling as to be almost electric, as if spring were simply a matter of flipping a switch. Hills, sky and forest revealed their purples, blues and greens. Leaves had unfurled, goldfinches had arrived at the feeder and daffodils were fighting their way heavenward.

The daffodils are struggling to blossom (i.e., fighting), upward, toward the sky (i.e., heavenward).

All the best, :D
