Reverse Bi Colors
11 Cultivars Listed
Reverse bi-colors is another 20th century human intervention into the daffodil genome. In nature a white petaled, yellow cupped daffodil is a norm. In this category it is the other way around: the petals are yellow and the cup is white. To qualify the petals must be all yellow or have two consecutive 'YY's in the classification, in the cup a single W or two consecutive 'WW's. Reverse bi-colors could be from any division, but most likely are trumpets, large cups, triandrus cyclamineus, and jonquils.
A recent yellow and white triandrus with modulating colors on its way to the final chorus. Floriferous, scented, and substantial with lovely color. A reverse bi-color. From Chipper , inherits the lovely velvety substance. Named after the Beatles record album released in 1969.
A record album was a disc that stored music and aural data in wavy grooves embossed in vinyl. See also the Fab Four.
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.
In the States, in a crowdsourced competition, he would have been named “Snooty McSnootface”, but our Snooty is indeed an Irish Lord of both Trumpets and reverse bi-colors. Awesome flower, sired by Brian Duncan. As a new Introduction it doesn’t appear to be registered at this writing. Only a few bulbs to offer.
The original Lord Snooty is a British comic book character dating from the 1930's.
A full flavored cyclamineus, and a reverse bi-color one at that. We adore the sixes and try to list a lot, the only other reverse bi-cycli we offer is Lemon Silk, who is a cool sophisticate. But Peppercorn has a perky profile and is peppery all over. That flanged cup, oh baby that lasts long on the taste buds. By Ron ‘Hotstuff’ Scamp. Just a handful to offer.
Horace said “Carpe Diem”, but I don’t think he would be prepared for the gear-faced reverse bi-colored trumpet Seize the Day. Hits on all of the cylinders, it is an audacious daffodil. Large, it blooms out of the blue strappy leaves. Recent introduction from Carlos van der Veek.
