For lovers of "true" pink, this is one of the best I've seen... it's a pale pastel color, but it's definitely not coral or salmon pink, more "baby girl pink." I don't remember where I got it and can't find it online now, but I would say it is a large cup daffodil and not a trumpet daff (I believe it was listed under both divisions in the database... I just submitted a proposal to merge the listings)
