Gardeners' Notes:

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

I think of this as the standard white trumpet. I've found it to be a good performer and a vigorous naturalizer. Like most whites, it opens a light yellow and bleaches to white in a day or so.

Positive Toxicodendron On May 15, 2004, Toxicodendron from Piedmont, MO (Zone 6a) wrote:

Mount Hood turns a pure sparkling white as it matures. It is a large daffodil with strong stems. It is not a good multiplier for me, though, and not a prolific bloomer. I think I might have it planted too deep.
