This daffodil came up in my sister's garden. I've never seen a daffodil with more than one bloom, so I thought I'd share!

There are various multi-flowered daffodil cultivars, and this is one. They're among the smaller-flowered, so-called "rock garden" varieties.

Really cool! I found it really interesting daffodil. This is the first time I heard about the "rock garden" varieties.

Oh great to know a name! My sister did not plant this daffodil, and doesn't know how it got there, other than possibly by critter transport.

How welcoming to see a daffodil on the ground without your sister planting it... :-)
but in reality that always happens and what’s really nice about daffodils is that it require a few little care from planting to flowering.

And Daffodil symbolizes hope most especially for those affected by cancers.
