Gardeners' Notes:

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

The swept-back, windmilled tepals give this a uniquely graceful look. A great performer and a vigorous naturalizer, one of my favorites.

Lately, I've had a hard time locating bulbs that aren't virused.

Hands down my favorite white daffodil. Wonderful, fragrant blooms are long lasting. Hold up nicely as a cut flower. Very elegant form, almost hauntingly beautiful and orchard-like. Each stem has between 2 and 4 flowers.
Highly recommended!

Planted in Dec, thalia came up the first week in May. Wanted to see if the cultivar would work in parts of the lawn or if the grass would be too high. As they will be earlier next year, it looks doable although the grass is a little weedy looking. The fragrance is wonderful from a clump of thalia. Very subtle.

What a beautiful, all white daff. It is supposed to be a good selection for southern gardens, and while our 2006 winter was rather crazy and off norm, this daff did not disappoint. Highly recommend. Planted inground, full sun.

Mar 2010: while not vigorous, it has not decreased and it is reliable and beautiful as ever. Definitely a southern garden must-hjave.

I've got this daffodil scattered all over my garden. It's a fairly late bloomer, very elegant, and holds up well.

Positive Toxicodendron On Jan 27, 2004, Toxicodendron from Piedmont, MO (Zone 6a) wrote:

I have grown this bulb for many years, starting with 5 bulbs, and now I have hundreds of them. They naturalize very well. They multiply quickly, but still bloom well when crowded. All stems have at least 2 blooms, a lot of them have 3. The white flowers are later than most of my daffodils. The only drawback is their very strong "fragrance" if brought inside for bouquets. Some folks like it, my DH hates it. They smell like Paperwhite narcissus. Not bothered by any insects or diseases.
