Wonderful double golden tazetta type narcissus that starts blooming with the usual paperwhites --about Dec in my Zone 9 garden. The blooms appear on a strong, tall stem. It's nice to have some bright yellow among all the white flowers.

I planted this bulb several years ago and don't remember where I bought it. It never came up. I was just looking at it at Brent & Becky's and they have it listed as a 'non-hardy' daffodil, only for zones 8-10. That would explain the failure in my zone 6 garden.
