Graceful, creamy-white flowers

got the bulbs from Old House Gardens--it was in their Fall 2005 catalog (but is not currently listed on the website). some infor here: []
and here: []

(text from second website): In the long-crowned group the crown is as long or longer than the winglike structures that are attached to the base of the crown, and that are called the segments of the perianth (figure 16). The trumpet daffodil (Narcissus pseudo-narcissus), with its hybrids, belongs to this group, as does also the hoop-petticoat daffodil (Narcissus bulbocodium var. conspicuum). Among the best varieties of the trumpet daffodil are Ard Righ (Irish King), Emperor, Empress, Golden Spur, Horsfieldii, Madame de Graaff, Mrs. Harry J. Veitch, Obvallaris (Tenby daffodil), Trumpet Major, Victoria, and the old-fashioned double daffodil,Von Sion.

(excerpt from third website): ALL-WHITE TRUMPETS. Early: Cernuus albicans; a very graceful "Swan's Neck"; Mrs. Thompson, strong, free flowering and large; Princess Ida, small, but curiously edged with yellow at the mouth. Midseason: William Goldring, with perianth over-hanging the trumpet. Late: Madame de Graaff, most beautiful and largest.
