Neutral coriaceous On Jan 31, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

The tepals have a charming twist that animates the bloom.

Its exceptional earliness makes it exceptionally valuable in the garden. For those of us too far north to grow hoop-petticoat daffodils, this comes into bloom before the other popular early daffodils (like 'February Gold' and 'Tete-a-tete'). Here in Boston Z6a, it begins in March.

It's much smaller than the usual Div 1 trumpets, though not small enough to be a miniature, either.

An excellent naturalizer. Hardy to Z3.
