This large-cupped, yellow-petaled w/ orange cup daffodil is a classic award-winning entry from England by John Lea; registered in 1963; it has an illustrious history in daffodil breeding. It is both seed and pollen fertile. It's been utilized in the former 15 times, the latter 23 times, by hybridizers mostly in Northern Ireland and the United States (also England and New Zealand) from 1983 through 2010.
