"Las Vegas is a giant upfacing flower with creamy petals and a buttercup yellow cup that draws as much attention as any Las Vegas showgirl, great landscape perennial; 18 to 20 inches, early to mid spring." Description courtesy of Brent and Becky's Bulbs.

'Las Vegas' has great impact in the garden, with sturdy tall stems and big blooms. The substance of the blooms (thick petals) give it tremendous staying power... In a vase, it lasts twice as long as most other daffs. Definitely a must-have!

Just simply one of my all time favorite spring perennials. Always make me so happy when they bloom in the spring. Here in southern Ohio, they are starting to peek out already. Hope they will be okay?
