Introduced in 1984 by Brian S. Duncan, Rathowen Daffodils. Selected from seedlings of N. Foundling x N. Delta Wings. A pretty orange pink addition to the cyclamineus group.

This was supposed to have "fiery orange-pink trumpets." I think they are more pastel, and it's on the large end for a miniature daf, but a pretty addtion to the spring scene.
