    Even though this lovely flower is registered as having orange petals and a red cup (2 O-R), its petals are really coppery orange and the cup is fiery red! No matter how you verbalize its colors, it's an eye-catcher! One of the latest blooming red cupped daffodils. Mid-Late Spring, 18"-24"
    Compliments of Brent and Becky's Bulbs.
