An "unusual and eye catching double daffodil sure to entice visitors to your garden. Candy Princess has multiple rows of coral pink segments in the cup with droplets of whipped cream here and there surrounded by single and sometimes double rows pf pure white petals." Description compliments of Brent and Becky's Bulbs..

Scented and sunproof.
