Gardeners' Notes:

Gorgeous bright yellow flowers, bloomed about 2-3 weeks later than naturalized daffodils. I found the stalks to be sturdy and remain upright even through several heavy storms. Blooms stayed fresh looking for several weeks.

Very large, recurved outer petals, singular flowers that tip over and kink with the slightest breeze. Grow in full sun, rich soil and with support to keep this somewhat fussy but rewarding plant.
