    White Heaven is an all-white (greenish-white), miniature, fall-flowering, hoop-petticoat type of hybrid daffodil bred on the West Coast by Walter J.M. Blom, first flowering in 2002. White Heaven was registered with the RHS in 2015. Flowers are overall star shaped, and they smell sweet.
    All this makes for a rather unusual daffodil. Needless to say, it fetches a pretty price.
