I planted 100 Camelot in the fall of 2012 and would love to buy some more. I split them between a stand in the front yard and one in the back. For me, it is a late blooming daffodil, which is what I really love about it.

Camelot is listed twice in The International Daffodil Register & Classified List of 'The Royal Horticultural Society Horticultural Database’. The other entry describes a division 2 daffodil registered by R H Bath (of Cambridgeshire England) w/ a 1st flowering date of pre-1927. This one has a white perianth and yellow corona (while the main entry above has both a yellow perianth and yellow corona).
