    Described by vendors as 'ultimate of pristine perfection' and 'w/ luminous green eye' this cultivar is a blue ribbon winner. Bred by Guy Wilson the best white daffodil hybridizer in the last century.
    RHS description - 'Fl. 95 mm wide; perianth segments very broadly ovate in outline, blunt or truncate at apex, slightly mucronate, spreading, with midrib showing, overlapping half; the inner segments narrower, a little inflexed, with margins wavy; corona shallow bowl-shaped, broad, ribbed, bluish white, with mouth even, rim crenate.' (www.rhs.org.uk)
    Seed and pollen fertile- used in breeding crosses as seed 8 time, as pollen 16 times.

    Forcible; once forced may be relocated to garden for bloom in subsequent seasons.
