We hesitate to deem Beautiful Dream as a good “filler” flower for the bouquet, although it succeeds any way you see fit to use it. Because of its gentle nature and its ability to elevate its neighbors, you may overlook its strength, frilly cup and lovely coloration. Like all things Grant Mitsch there is perfection here, but perfection does not exclude gentleness. Pollen and seed fertile. Granddaughter of China White. Don't be shy, we have a good stock of this daffodil.
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 ! A very well ordered and well behaved split cup, with a profound color. A good grower for us, a perfect thing like most things Ron Scamp. See also Jabberwocky. Limited availability.
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.
There is a stable of Brian Duncan White / Pink small cups that we find so rewarding it is hard to pick a favorite. Camilla Clara Kate is so robust and substantial that we think it is time to close the book. A stem like a utility pole, a bloom without weakness. An example of why we love small cups. Lovely competitor.
All white small cup with an intense, cherry pink rim on the cup Cherry Glow is a newer Brian Duncan cultivar. Substantial flower on a substantial plant. Cherry Glow would be our choice to take to a show, she pushes the upwards boundaries of small cup. Great stems.
Where were you when you first saw Chipper? We were slack jawed in a greenhouse in North Holland when we were told “You can’t afford that”. Fast forward to today, and it turns out we can afford Chipper. A meteor shower of vertically pendant blooms with compound color leaving a trail of wavy and reflexed petals. One to start a collection with, one to end with. We hang out together a lot in the Spring.
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.
Who would pick Dr. Fleming out of the Spring Intelligence Service line-up? Like all of the frilly faces, carrot-faced or not, old Alexander is a reliable thriller. Given a second chance I would plant him in gravel and manure. Dr. Alex sports a white halo.
Dunkeld is a very old daffodil variety that is strong and solid in the border and in the landscape planting. Straightforward yellow and orange four inch flowers. A vigorous grower that makes a very large bulb. Pollen and seed fertile, Dunkeld has sired many red cups.
A work of sorcery that everyone wants when they see it. Edged in Gold is a very late, miniature jonquilla that brushes its golden color outside of the lines. Magic on the bench. Edged in Gold deserves to be in every rock garden. Fragrant. Up to six tiny flowers per scape. Bred by Steve Vinsky in Oregon.
Our flower growers collective tallied up the sales figures and white flowers were number one, followed closely by anything green. Emerald Green is a large cup, but just, with very broad white petals and a spot of deep emerald green in the eye. A vigorous grower for cut, bench or border. An extra plus ? It’s a Grant Mitsch variety, known for perfection and health. Volume discounts.
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.
