Upfacing daffodil w/ white petals fronted by a salmon-pink cup. American bred (Grant Mitsch) award winner. Vigorous grower, quite showy. Brent and Becky consider it one of the best landscape pinks. Good for forcing.

Extensively used in breeding programs - 45 times as a seed parent and 99 times as a pollen parent. List of descendants viewable at the ADS DaffSeek site./
