This is more reliable than most of the split-cups, and less dependent on the weather for good corona splitting. I also like the form better than the others. It's also more consistent.
This is really the only split-crowned narcissus that I would want to have in my garden.

The color is a soft lemon yellow and not a strident gold. It combines better with a wider range of colors than gold does.
