Mr. Snooty is one strange-looking Div. 1 (Trumpet) daffodil. It's star shaped with 6 twisted lemon yellow petals around a long golden yellow cylindrical trumpet. One noted breeder of daffodils postulates Mr. Snotty may be the result of a "spontaneous" hybrid between 'Golden Spur' and 'Princeps' and calls it a "Spurceps."
Cultivar is susceptible to a lot of variation.
