A lovely bright and cheery golden-colored miniature jonquilla daffodil. They are very fragrant in my garden too! The foilage is grass-like. They grow to about 8 inches tall. I have them growing in two separate beds, one is raised and one is in somewhat heavy clay. Both areas do great with Baby Boomer. I have seen no difference in performance. So, those that have difficult sites or heavy soil could consider these. I planted them last fall and they bloomed beautifully this spring. I can't wait to see them multiply and bloom more next spring.

Update: 5/18/12 Does not bloom now, just green leaves all the time. I even let the foilage brown out by itself all season last year. Hmm... Not worth the trouble I guess. Live and learn.
