It was available back in 2008 in England. Maybe some English vender still carries it? I tried the present RHS nursery list but it wasn't listed thereon.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

I looked and could not find it listed anywhere either.

Me neither. Good luck!

The article that jmorth cited makes it sound pretty rare:

http://www.gateshead.gov.uk/Council%20and%20Democracy/news/N...

"first created 17 years ago" (1991)

"the first bulb created took five years to flower, with a number of small bulblets produced from the original."

"Now dozens of mother bulbs have been produced commercially for the first time in honour of the Angel of the North’s birthday – although all are now ordered by buyers. Several have also been given away in Gateshead Council competitions."

It may come down to asking the UK Gateshead Council and Rae Beckwith who ever had any bulbs, then trying to trade for it.

There are several daffodil societies, national and local, where you could cast your net. You might browse some of these specialized sites and ask around.
