A recently introduced double that is most like a lotus blossom when it opens a mild- yellow with an alluring symmetry. As Ambon matures into clear white and yellow it gets wide and wild. You will easily be able to select a very stunning bloom. Best as a stem, in the landscape Ambon blooms a bit in the leaves. This Daffodil is named for a city in the Moluccas in Indonesia, once a Dutch colony.
Androcles pulled a thorn from the paw of a pursuing lion thus befriending him. Androcles the daffodil has calmed and tamed us also, we depend on it in large numbers for the vase and the border. Its broad, softly cream colored , and long lasting blooms project a quiet roar . Bred by the American Bill Pannill who created many perfect blooms, one at at time.
Ballistic. Bright perfectly formed, well structured double with 4 inch blooms. Full throated Kiwi style from New Zealand. Photographs don't do Ballistic justice. You will so want this daffodil when you see it. We did.
A flamboyant, substantial, and free spirited double, Bella Ciao is a recent van der Veek introduction. Large blooms, a good grower, currently rare and limited but she has higher aspirations.
We are partial to the Yves Montand version (yes Yves was Italian).
And the people who shall pass (And all those who shall pass) Oh Goodbye beautiful, Goodbye beautiful, Goodbye beautiful! Bye! Bye! And the people who shall pass (And all those who shall pass) Will tell me: "what a beautiful flower" (And they will say: "what a beautiful flower")
This is the flower of the partisan
(And this is the flower of the partisan) Oh Goodbye beautiful, Goodbye beautiful, Goodbye beautiful! Bye! Bye! This is the flower of the partisan
(And this is the flower of the partisan) Who died for freedom
This recent Mark Vandervliet double is not registered, and being a flower previously unseen I was perplexed by the size of the bulb, a really big bulb. The double flower is equally as big and supremely well organized and detailed. Like many sumo-sized doubles she blooms in the leaves a bit, so better for the vase and the bench than the border. I would like to have a platoon of Big Girls.
This long celebrated double is new to our list. She is a magnificent creature and as old as the hills, as fresh as the dawn. Good for all uses and certainly as a conversation piece. I seldom see Butter and Eggs on the bench, but in a historical group certainly one to have. Fabulous and luxurious North, South, East, and West.
Doesn't cry, doesn't shout, Easter Born stands upright and quiet in the border and vase. The softest of all yellow corona color and six sided perianth makes it a singular double. Excellent for cut, bolsters an arrangement and plays well with others.
A love-child of Serena Beach , Falling for You is more tousled- haired and freer in spirit. Where did such a romantic name come from ? Not overly complicated, Falling for You is a large and substantive white / yellow double daffodil.
Do you have a desert island daffodil ? (dit vertaalt zich niet in het Nederlands). Feu de Joie is mine, I would be happily banished to a desert island or even asteroid B-612 for that matter if I could take only this flower. We are swooning and proud that this flower finally made our list. Returns and rewards annually in the garden. Every bloom better than the next. Antique white / orange double. ADS Historic. Very limited stock.
Fragrant Spring is a luxurious double Dutch Double - She gets her powerful perfume from her mother and her double form from her father, Acropolis. We are listing it because we think it so belongs in the vase.
Well-named Frostbite is a spontaneous poeticus sport, extra white pointy petals intruding into the cup. Widely variable except that Frostbite retains an overall hexagonal corona shape, analogous to snowflakes. Scented Frostbite brings a lovely blast of cool to the late spring border when all of the other daffodils have melted. An intermediate, Frosty is attractive in a vase , for us blooms with Spanish Bluebells and Tulip Maureen. You will be pleasantly surprised by the the scent.
Normally we abhor superlatives but we are quite okay with calling Gay Kybo one of the most beautiful flowers ever. Deep and lush white petals evenly articulated with deep orange corona bits. Stunning in any garden and a big beauty on the show bench. Organized and substantial petals that mature white.
Gay Kybo is part of a larger series : Gay Challenger, Gay Time, Gay Song, that are all beautiful and now mostly gone from the trade. If you are able to find any of the Gays, you should acquire them for your garden. Gay Kybo is rumored to be a rescued discard and named after a (winning) race horse, or something more scatalogical.
Many of the historic old blooms that we love are star-flowered small cups. But watch out, the free formed, star shaped, old doubles will steal your heart. Insulinde is ivory and tangerine and libertine all over. Hard to to pick a favorite from others in this style : Argent, Feu de Joie. Long lived, long lasting, held aloft on robust scapes. A Backhouse cultivar.
Keats is a strange fellow. But everybody wants him on first sight, us inclusive. Green, yellows and whites you don't see much, like finding a thick book of poetry. I have heard him called everything from "variable" to "unstable" which seems to be reverse doublespeak for "handsome".. Enjoy and repeat.
A very beefy White and Yellow Double daffodil from New Zealand. First perianth row is double triangle shaped. Kiwi Magic opens with a bright yellow corona and matures to a softer cream.Just a handful in stock.
A round confection of royal icing and strawberry cream, Little Dorr is a recent intermediate double. A crumpled yet neat bloom, divided equally between two soft colors. 3 inch flowers. From the Brian Duncan pastry counter.
Mazzard has the truest pink color of any double narcissus we can think of, a full sized bloom on a plant that has a tidy form, every flower is perfect. I think the florists will like it. Please do not buy this daffodil for in my greed I am trying to corner the market. Perfection from Ron Scamp.
If there were ever a narcissus trying to emulate a ranunculus, then Serena Beach is it. A serene beauty, a love child of Dallas and the no longer existent Gay Song, Serena Beach will elevate a May wedding. In the vase or border a wonderful bloom. Quantity Pricing.
