An extremely long flowering fall daffodil

Description/comment from DaffSeek - 'Fls usually about 9 per stem. Scented. Resembles 'Grand Monarch'.

A description according to Cotter's 1972-73 catalog: “A remarkable variety bred Silver Chimes x White Owl. On second year down a short row will produce flowers throughout autumn, winter and until mid-September – 5 to 5 ½ months. Flowers somewhat resembles 'Grande Monarch', usually about 9 to the scape and spaced evenly around the rather tall straight stem. Each floret is perfectly formed an is of thick substance: cannot be faulted as a show flower One flower is sufficient to scent a large room. Has been exhibited only once on which occasion it gained first place in single blooms, the flower having been picked 5 months after the 12 foot row had produce its earliest bloom. Multiplies rapidly and is robust in growth”
