A rather rare fall-flowering daffodil with a green cup fronting white petals was registered in 2003 by John Hunter, a New Zealander. Flowers are presented as an umbel (multi-flowering stems) The fragrance of this cultivar is wonderful, mixing the fragrance of a viridiflorus species daffodil with a tazetta daffodil.
It's on my most-sought list.
