I've never seen this daffodil before. The blooms are small, and there are 3 or 4 blooms on each stem. Any idea which type of daffodil it is? Thanks for any help!

The color in the second photo is very accurate.

Assuming it's a double, could be Manly (color similar to 2nd pic) or perhaps Yellow Cheerfulness.

Thanks jmorth. I don't think it's a double, but it's puckered in the middle, so I'm not sure. I was actually looking for the type of daffodil. Not worried about it's name.

I am still waiting to find out what "type" of daffodil it is, I was not sure what the "type" actually means. So I am assuming there is a type of daffodil that has several blooms on one stalk, and other types that have only one per stalk, but I am sorry I do not know the names for them. Any one out there got links for "types" of daffodils? Didn't see a sticky note on bulbs.

Ok I found this site, it seems to have a pretty good list of the "types" of daffodils, I need to study it looks pretty informative.

Ok, if they have a scent I would say they are Tazetta, anyone agree or disagree.

Thanks Seedfork. I just went out and took a whiff, and they smell delicious! Wouldn't have tried that if you hadn't asked. I just didn't see anything on that page that looked the same. But, today the center seems to have opened up some more, making it look more like a double. I am probably confused on the double part. I'm used to large daffs, and if they are double, they are very full. This one is only full in the center. Wish I knew the names of all the parts!

Just clicked on another link, and found Yellow Cheerfulness. Looks almost exactly like mine!

Double Daffodil (Narcissus 'Yellow Cheerfulness')

Not a tazetta (div 8) but a double (div 4).
