Used in daffodil creation projects as cultivar is both seed and pollen fertile. Used 17 times as seed, 8 times as pollen parent. An extensive list of descendants may be viewed at this DaffSeek site (6-4-13) - http://daffseek.org/query/Desc...
Corona coloration somewhat dependent on climatic conditions.

The International Daffodil Register & Classified List at www.rhs.org.uk lists two entries for Salome. The other one delineates a registered division 3 small cupped white petal daffodil bred by The Brodie of Brodie of Scotland w/ a first flowering note of around 1909. Seed parent of this entry was ‘Princess Mary’ while pollen parent was Engleheart red Poeticus sdlg.
