DaffSeek 12-11-13 comment - 'Fl. 68mm wide; perianth and other petaloid segments in several whorls; the outer whorls 28mm long, broadly ovate, blunt, with prominent white mucro, spreading, a little twisted, overlapping a quarter; the inner segments becoming shorter and successively more inflexed towards centre; corona segments 24mm long, interspersed among the petaloid segments, curled inwards from midrib and a little wavy. Much looser and less tightly packed than 'Butter and Eggs'.

Intermediate size daffodil.
