Coronach is a small-cup, late-blooming daffodil bred by Mrs. R.O. (Sarah) Backhouse from England in 1921 that was used in Irish breeding programs 19 times, resulting in 17 named cultivars and 2 noted seedlings from 1938 to 1952. Coronach was used as the seed parent 11 times and the pollen parent 8 times. The Irish breeder J. Lionel Richardson was primarily involved in the aforementioned programs, utilizing it to create 16 of the cultivars; Guy Wilson (Northern Ireland) was the other hybridizer.
