Hmm!
There are hundreds of named daffodils.
It is hard to know for sure what name yours has.

I agree with Silversurfer, there are so many hybrid, named cultivars out there that it's probably impossible to find the exact name of your Daffodils (Narcissus) if it had no label when you acquired it.

I found a few in our database that resembles your plant but still, there's no way to be certain of the name if your plant did not have a label/tag attached to it.

Double Daffodil (Narcissus 'Bridal Crown')
Double Daffodil (Narcissus 'Cheerfulness')
Double Daffodil (Narcissus 'Obdam')
Double Daffodil (Narcissus 'Manly')
Double Daffodil (Narcissus 'Erlicheer')

I would not advise putting that name on your plant since there is no way you can be certain it's that particular cultivar. As was stated, there are hundreds, if not thousands of named cultivars.

We have almost 200 pages of Narcissus listed in our database: https://garden.org/plants/brow... many with photos but it's still impossible to know for certain which one yours might be. You should just label your plant Narcissus/Daffodil unless there is a way to trace it back to where it originated.

I know, I just said that it is similar
I got it from a local shop without a name (most of the plants that sold here are without exact names).

If there is only 1 bloom per stem, it's either Obdam or Manly (using Lin's list). Erlicheer has 6 to12 flowers per stem, Cheerfulness has 2 or 3, Bridal Crown 3 to 6.
Obdam is considerably taller than Erlicheer.
There's 26570 listed different daffodils in our database; of these, only about 10% are presently available to purchase.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

@jmorth

it is not one, I counted now, each steam has 4 booms
Bridal Crown' is correct, but maximum zone is wrong, mine is zone 10-11

That is exactly the point I was trying to make!
Need an expert in Daffodils to be sure which your one is.

It's consistent with my 'Early Cheer'.. Not 'Bridal Crown', or the others Lin listed, whose forms are all different.
'Early Cheer' has the "petals" evenly stacked.. but as others have said... there are a lot of hybrids!

@Henhouse, are you sure about Early Cheer being a viable contender, It's not in our database, ADS DaffSeek, or the RHS Daffodil Registry; there's a lot of Earlys but none for Cheer; though I do remember 'Blue Cheer'.

I thought her's looked like Erlicheer, which has too many flower heads to be the missing name.

I added Early Cheer to the Erlicheer database as an aka.
