An award-winning trumpet daffodil from the Netherlands. A bright, white-petaled and yellow 'stovepipe' cup flower, it was registered in 1974. It has been utilized 11 times to develop new daffodils, 6 times as a seed parent, 5 times as the pollen parent, by breeders in the United States, Scotland, and New Zealand since 1997.
Winner of the most distinguished English and US daffodil awards. Bravoure was granted the RHS Award of Garden Merit in 1993 and the American Wister Award in 2002.
A sure-fire performer in the garden and on the show bench.
