Gardeners' Notes:

I planted several different kinds of jonquil narcissus from Brent and Becky's and this one is outstanding, the best of the lot. Not only is it beautiful with a wonderful fragrance, it also keeps blooming for a very long time. It started blooming around early-mid daffodil season, and just kept blooming. Several other kinds of daffodils started and finished blooming during that time, but it just kept going, opening up fresh new flower buds. Now it's blooming with my very latest daffodils. The later flowers are smaller than the earlier flowers, but still beautiful.

Hands-down my favorite Narcissus--I love the way that the yellow bleeds outward. Blooms a little over two weeks for me in zone 6a.
