'Spellbinder' is a large, early, strong daffodil that lasts for weeks if the weather is not too hot. The white color inside the cup and around the base of it develops with age . Good multiplier and wonderful cut flower. By the way, don't put daffodils with other cut flowers. They secrete some type of substance that kills the other blooms in the vase. I have found that yew cuttings are a nice complement to the blooms.
