In an average lifespan, if you had a million kisses to either give or receive, that would be 34 a day, or about two every waking hour of every day, which would be a very pleasant experience. A Million Kisses daffodil is also a pleasant show of affection – bred in the English Channel islands it puckers up with very round and overlapping white segments with a flattened yellow and broad -orange-banded frilly cup. Freshly registered, AMK is a child of Jersey Lace.
Strong and consistent Aberfoyle is a very dependable large orange cupped entry for the bench. Gets better upon further inspection. An English variety from the 80’s

My Best Friend has a round pale primrose moon face and thin orange ring on his very round corona. Such are the bonds of friendship. A real bench burner. By Clive Postles. Only a handful available.
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.
White and pink large cupped daffodil for competition from Clive Postles.
Bobbysoxer -- such a funny orange face on this Alec Gray jonquilla. Floriferous, friendly, fun. Diminutive but stands tall in the close-up garden bed and rockery. Old, but not a miniature nor a historic — ADS Classic.
It’s hard to make a living selling Boslowick, he is so perfect, broad faced and calming that you only need to buy one bulb to make your day. Sold in twos, or please more !

Anyone referring to a flower named 'Buttercup' elicits all kinds of confusion. Are they referencing a Ranunculus, using a generic term for jonquils that bloom freely in the South, increasingly as an alias for Tête-à-Tête? One of the several daffodils registered under that name? We offer the historic Rev. Engleheart jonquilla 'Buttercup', a strong grower with large flowers more reminiscent of a historic small cup. Rare. Brings intense happiness to the gardener. Smells good.
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.
