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.
