'Corona expanded, yellow, with a band of orange at rim, frilled.
A Classic daffodil.
A description according to Cotter's 1972-73 catalog: β€œOne of the finest in its class. A well-posed flower of large size, with pure white perianth. Segments are wide and of think firm substance and fine smooth texture. The saucer-shaped crown is intense dark red shading to yellow in the eye. Robust plant, tall-stemmed.” The catalog classifies this daffodil as a 3B Small-Cupped.'
