1982 saw the arrival of the division-2 cultivar 'Culmination' from West Coast hybridizer Grant Mitsch (Oregon). Culmination, being both seed and pollen fertile, has been instrumental as a parent cross (7 as seed parent and 22 as pollen parent)) for subsequent daffodil cultivars. Of the 29 known crosses, 27 have advanced as named daffodils (2 are noted seedlings). The named cultivars were born between 1995 and 2011 in the USA (19 times), New Zealand (7 times), and England (1 time).
Culmination is a nicely proportioned daffodil with a "pink" (salmon-rose) corona against a white background (petals).
