Section Jonquilla. Smaller, floriferous daffodils , 1-5 blooms per stem, always good smelling, always charming with chive-like round foliage. The source of great perfumes.

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.
Dainty Miss is a siren's song in the garden. An all-white jonquil she goes it alone, only one two-inch perfectly appointed, dainty-cupped flower per stem please. Wanting a chorus of Dainty Miss for your garden is only natural. Compelling. Benchable. Miss Dainty is an ADS Classic, Wister Award winner, a mid century spell of Grant Mitsch witchcraft.

Did you ever sit up at night wondering where all the split, the wavy, and the frilly cupped daffodils came from? Not from the stork but from cordubiensis – now you can rest easy and descend into deep daffodil reverie. A species and a feral thing.
Why does Flowmay drive us to such devotion? She is a tiny, miniature jonquilla, all white with an impossibly delicate pink rim on the cup. So improbable a heroine, so hopeful in a world of naysaying giants. Alec Gray named this for the missus. Tiny and rare. ADS Classic.
Limequilla is a superstar jonquil hybrid: floriferous; beautifully formed; fertile ? which is notable for a jonquilla cross. Up to five blooms on a stem, ever-changing in color from yellow to greenish ivory, every day's march to maturity is enthralling. C
Little Rusky is a really, really little Jonquil. Like the other bigger Ruskies we know, he is intense and rewards with painstaking attention to detail. When you catch a flash of the green eye, you too will understand. Handsome as the Tsar in form and
A diminutive and spirited fellow, Medway Gold punches well above his weight. A modern cultivar, a cross of species assoanus and Gipsy Queen Medway is a jonquil that sports a starry perianth and a deep cup. Smells good. Way cute. We find it to be a nearly perfect cultivar; it is also a trumpet. ADS miniature.
A feisty little filly, Miss Klein is a jonquil hybrid, likely from Rupicola. Impossibly small bulbs make a vigorous plant, with often three ( four ?) blooms per stem. On the mini end of miniature she is a good one to have for the rock garden or cutting.
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.
A species on species jonquil cross by Grant Mitsch that is upright and fabulous in the garden. Pixie's Sis has been around for a long while, but has suffered some major career setbacks through no fault of her own. We are lucky to have a few to offer as she makes her way back to a full recovery. A truly great jonquil for the bench and garden, North and South1. ADS Miniature.
