    The kids notice its pink-coral color from across the garden and always want some in their bouquets, especially as it seems to be in bloom for Mother's Day. It's got a great fragrance and seems to be the best performer in both garden and vase of the "pink" daffs I've tried so far, although the great substance of 'Precocious' is giving it a run for its money (plant them together, and put pink-rimmed 'Audubon' nearby as well).

    Compliments of Brent and Becky's Bulbs.
