I had read this was an early bloomer, but it was one of the last to open up in my yard this year, which made it a nice treat. I'll be interested in finding out if the late season was a first-year fluke or if it will continue to bloom after most other daffodils are long gone.

The blooms didn't last as long as I would have liked, but we had some very heavy rainstorms (incl light flooding). It held up under the abuse fairly well.
