An almost pure double white sport (opens w/ yel, becomes white) of 'Ice Follies' from Holland's C K Bakker.
Listed as tall (over 26") in the RHS database, commercial catalogs list it at 16 to 18".

These keep coming back, but they seem to be very sensitive to heat because the last couple of years the buds dried up before opening. This year a few opened, but as soon as we had a hot day the remaining buds bolted. I have them in afternoon shade and there are plenty of other daffodils planted with them that do not have the same problem.
