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.
Bodilly is pollen and seed fertile and has been around so long that he has great-grandchildren. A distinct and deep yellow cup, set on a white rounded star. Cornish Roots. A sterling daffodil for mixed border or mixed in the landscape. We are growing it in a large cup landscape mix and as a cut flower. Strong grower, makes a large bulb.
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.
Camborne is an Alec Gray miniature all-white trumpet. Registered posthumously. Long and frilly cup, matures to pure white. This is one to have in the rockery. Tiny little baroque thing. Used as a pollen parent with species cyclamineus. ADS miniature.
Cyclataz is the lovechild of a species CYCLAmineus and the TAZetta Grande Soleil d'Or . Vigorous, floriferous, wild in form, rich in color. Cyclataz does well in pot culture. ADS Historic. ADS Miniature. She is also the parent of three notable offsprin
Englander is a cyclamineus seedling that retains just a bit of wildness tempered with just a bit of sophistication. Sporting a real long schnoz and slim reflexed petals. An ADS miniature that is a long lived resident in the rockery. Good in the pot and
A cross of two species pseudonarcissus, Gipsy Queen is a soft white and greenish-yellow miniature trumpet from Alec Gray. Queenie is a strong grower and commands attention in the bed, pot or on the bench. Because she blooms so early, we associate her reign with late spring snowfall, but given her lineage she should perform well further south. Alec Gray. ADS Miniature. ADS Classic.
From Alec Gray, a low-growing, deep yellow flower with long narrow trumpet and supersonic swept-back petals. 4 inches. A lovely and diminutive cyclamineus. Fasten your seatbelts and put your tray table in the upright locked position. Very early. ADS Classic.
It is not often that a yellow trumpet is found adjacent to the term ‘Intermediate’. But Little Alfred sports all of the trumpet flanged and notched cupped bling that you want, but with a “seen not heard” modesty that you like. Lovely color, form and detail. Increases. We think Little Alfred is a candidate for pot culture.
Little Darling is a modern tiny trumpet, a golden miniature that has great aerodynamics. Even colored, Little Darling shows her cyclamineus ancestry with curled reflex petals. Her trumpet ends in a frilly mouth so she can whisper sweet nothings into you
Mary Poppins is a platinum blonde with pale silver-yellow blooms that are tough and long lasting as a strict governess. Strong grower that can increase rapidly. Mary seems to tolerate Zone 6 but is probably happier in Zones 7 and 8. Dwarf and miniature
An older cyclamineus registered by Grant Mitch, Mite is a miniature and aside from not being particularly pendant, it retains a lot of cyclamineus spirit. Very fertile, Mite is a good surrogate for the species in breeding, the species cyclamineus must be raised from seed. Way adorable and sophisticated, it is hard to not stare. ADS Miniature. ADS Classic.
From an anonymous breeder, Orange Queen is a wavy cupped old jonquil that really is more orange than she looks. Classified as a dwarf, she is more imposing than she seems, floriferous to three blooms on a stem. Good North and South. ADS Historic.
