A most commanding presence, this is a seriously classical all pure white trumpet heirloom from the good Rev.Englehart in 1923 (in his 70's), from England. OHG continues to make this cultivar available. They note the praise heaped upon it by the great daffodil bredder Guy Wilson, "a flower of arresting beauty and outstanding purity".
I was able to force it with relative ease, and the result surpassed my expectations exceedingly. A very impressive cultivar. I plan to transplant it into the garden this fall for bloom in subsequent years.
