'Fls 2-3 and rarely 5 per stem, facing down; perianth segments broadly ovate, whitish yellow, spreading or somewhat inflexed, concave, with margins wavy, overlapping a quarter to one-third; corona funnel-shaped, about as long as the perianth segments, bright yellow, with mouth ribbed and more or less expanded, lightly frilled. This has also been used as a Group name.

This daffodil changed from Division 8 to Division 12 in 2007.

There is a question about the hybridizer as William Backhouse.
