This 4-inch stunner is classified as a Division 2 (large cupped) daffodil despite the fact that it actually varies to some extent between Division 2 and Division 3 (small cupped) daffodils. Bred by West Coast hybridizer Grant Mitsch, it was registered in 1965, though it was first noted blooming a decade earlier.
It can be forced.
