I got 5 daffodils labeled Curly which the picture on the front looked like white outer petals with orange petals inside having an edge that reminded me of morel mushrooms. What I got although nice seems like something else, but the only pictures on here match. Frustrating!

I planted 5 Professor Einstein bulbs in the fall and when they bloomed 4 were yellow and 1 was the correct color. I bought them loose from a bin at what is supposed to be a very good local nursery (not a big box).

I want to try again for this variety, but am feeling a little hesitant. The bulbs were purchased from a good nursery here too. $10.50 or so for 5.

Do you have a picture of what you wanted? I might have something like it around here that I'd be willing to part with.

I haven't seen Curly offered by any vendors I deal with in a few years. There is one in the new Brent and Becky's catalog called Curly Lace that has a similar bloom form, but it is yellow/gold.

I know nothing about this vendor, but they have Curly on their website. http://www.livinggardens.com/daffodil-curly?utm_source=plant...

I think it was Van Engelen on the bag which I threw away last fall. There is an almost identical picture of it on Brecks. http://www.brecks.com/product/curly-daffodil/New_Garden_Plan...

Thanks for the help everyone.
