This does out-perform the species in a garden setting, establishing earlier. I finally realized a morphological distinction (at least in my garden): It has a less scalloped and more rounded cup than the species.

A dainty little hoop petticoat daffodil (Division 14), and each bulb features a bunchlet of flowers only 4-6 inches tall. It is perfect for the sunny rockery--it can tolerate warm spring climates and is very hardy. Narrow foliage and an early bloomer. A Bulbocodium hybrid introduced from Holland in the 1990's.
