Gardeners' Notes:

Bought these bulbs as part of an end-of-season sale two variety pack in a wholesale club back in '05. Planted them and some large crocuses on the north side of my house right up against my porch and crossed my fingers. They've just come up beautifully for the fifth year in a row and I need to thin them when their season ends because they have no room left to spread.

Very beautiful daffodil and one of th most fragrant I've had rivaled only by the more musky paperwhite. The scent is sweet and light and when i smelt it a little after it bloomed, i got a small hint of lemon. This daffodil is stunning with just about any other spring bulb. I paired mine with 'Peter Stuyvestant' hyacinths and the effect was amazing because of the nice complementing colors and the two flowers' intense aroma. I love the brilliant white petals highlighted by the bright yellow orange cup and the fact that there are as much as 6 blooms on each stalk.

A nice daffodil with a nice contrast with the bright orange and white. This is an especiallly late one to bloom.

This tazetta cultivar is great for forcing indoors and reaches a height of 16". It also naturalizes well outdoors.
