From Old House Gardens -
'This extra-rare, white-on-white beauty completes the Copeland Family Double-Daffodil Trifecta. Mrs. Copeland was the mother of the lovely Irene and Mary Copeland, and the wife of the greatest breeder of double daffodils the world has ever known. 4 W-W, early-mid season, 18-20”, zones 4a-7b.'

All 3 females in creator's life were honored by Wm. Copeland when he gave newly created daffodils their names.
