Don't be fooled by companies that claim Chromacolor is a pink daffodil. There are no true pink narcissus. It's very pretty, though. The cup opens an orangy-yellow and matures to a rich apricot color. It slowly bleaches out in sun, but holds pretty well in dappled shade.

Seemed to bloom a long time in my garden, and also looked very pretty in a vase.
