A very successful white daffodil that has received a multitude of awards.
Described by the RHS as 'Fl. 102 mm wide, creamy white; perianth segments broadly ovate, blunt, only very slightly mucronate, inflexed, with margins incurling at apex, overlapping one-third to a half; the inner segments more narrowly ovate, more nearly acute, angled at shoulder, reflexed towards apex, with margins wavy; corona cylindrical, smooth, opening light greenish yellow 6D, mouth ribbed and expanded, with rim flanged and regularly notched and crenate.
The Royal Horticultural Society Horticultural Database’, available at www.rhs.org.uk
Good cultivar to force over winter. May subsequently be translocated to garden to bloom in following years.
