186 Cultivars Listed
The daffodil diggers of North Holland consider themselves to be tough guys. It is never good to be “soft” and they will let you know it, early and often. But here is the softest colored pink cup ever, and where does it come from but straight out of tough guy land. I think my florist friends will swoon and soften for Beau Beauté. She is a bit like High Society that has completed a course in anger management. Really remarkable color. New introduction from Carlos van der Veek.
Bernardino is a white and orange-apricot large cup dating to the beginning of the 20th century. Pollen and seed fertile, Bernardino served widely as a seed parent a hundred years ago. Bernie is a good grower, joyous in the mixed border and quite visible in the landscape as a point of attention.
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.
Broomhill is a tall, all white, mid-century large cup. Broad, overlapping petals, strong structure and flanged cup makes her a solid shower. Broomhill is a member of a rich bloodline - Beersheba, King Alfred and China White are ancestors. Very slightly misty green at the base of the cup. Seed fertile, Broomhill has been a seed parent for many all white, show worthy cultivars. ADS Classic.
