This lovely scented daffodil grows quite well where I live in Cincinnati, Ohio. I have them in my garden, and they flourish and multiply like crazy in the ghost of gardens where old houses have been torn down (In fact, that's how I originally got mine). I love them!

This is a species from 1601--AKA as Narcissus odorus flore pleno (plenus) called "Double Campernelle" or "The Queen Anne's Double". Said to look like a perfect little yellow rose, fragrant, early, often multiple blooms per stem, height 10"-12", a reliable naturalizer for zones 4-9.
