I brought some of these back home, but originally found them growing in what would have been the garden around a 1900s era abandoned farmhouse foundation. The trees planted over the land would have been in the 1920s area, presumably they've been happily left alone since then. There are no flowers anywhere near them to mix with, I've never seen daffodils that look like this. Whatever they are, they're gorgeous!

Only a guess, but there's an old heirloom daffodil called Butter and Eggs that is a double. Some one from your area might have a better idea though.

If they survive the winter at my house I'll try to go back for more, they're very oddly small and delicate. Half the height of most other daffodils. They're a few hours hiking to get to though, the entire hillside is covered in plants you'd expect in far colder areas. Most of the plants were too small for flowers. Their leaves were almost thin enough to be grass for some plants! Maybe in the spring I can look for a local garden club.

Never mind about the Butter and Eggs. Found another one I think may be it.

Page 6 of heirloom daffodils has a picture of Van Sion.
It looks exactly like your picture to me.

Ooo, one of those pictures looks almost identical. Thank you all for the help:) these were well worth the hike! I'll try for more pictures of mine bloom, or when I go back. This was the only other picture with them, it was just a different angle though.

If it works out for you, that would be great. Can never have too many photographs. Big Grin
