One of the few late blooming daff's that works well for the Gulf Coast. Holds its color really well, too.

Vivid and cheerful, and does not nod or fall over. Serola has great presence in the garden, it really draws the eye and is bright but not gaudy. Not much scent that I can detect, which is good for me because I am not a fan of daffodil fragrance.
