Narcissus 'Golden Spur' is reported to be a popular variety for early forcing. I have not tried forcing, but it began to bloom on Feb 2 in my zone 9 garden. This is the second year of bloom. It is only about 10 in tall which would also make it good for forcing in pots--not so tall that it has to be staked.

Golden Spur is one of the eldest still in culture, but never registered yellow trumpet daffodil..It is in 1885 cultivated by Ter Horst en Eikenhout, workers of the estate Bakkerhage in Wassenaar, Netherlands. Until the Second World War it has been one of the most exported daffodil.
