A beautiful flower with a delicate pastel yellow. I am always happy to see it come up again, I have my doubts each year because it doesn't seem to be the most vigorous of daffodils, and it hasn't multiplied as I had hoped it would. Doesn't seem to be readily available; mine was obtained from a source in the U.K.
