An old cultivar (pre 1906) that's registered in the International Daffodil Register & Classified List of the RHS. Info provided therefrom is scanty at best. There's a cryptic entry under the Division designation, says 'Division 2 or 3 (b or c)' ...‘The Royal Horticultural Society Horticultural Database’, available at www.rhs.org.uk
Nymph was used as a seed parent to produce Wynne in 1970.
