Hi I received a few daffodil bulbs from a local gardener last year. I was wondering if anyone knew what cultivar I have blooming in my garden? Thanks.

There are 100's of named Daffodils.
You need to look for ones with split corolla's.
This is just a suggestion...Narcissus Taurus.

Thanks Silversurfer! I've never heard of split corollas before.I'll do some more research. My only complaint is the flowers are droopy so I may have to stake them up.

There are thousands of named daffs so it is always hard to be sure.
However, your flower has a deeper rim of orange and a paler golden colour nearer the centre.

In searching www there are 1,000 of images...many may not be accurately labelled ...so I went to The American Daffodil Society (ADS) daffseek site to look at Narcissus Parisienne ...this is the image from that.
Not at all sure that it matches your flower...the centre looks uniform orange.

You're right SilverSurfer. I didn't notice the darker orange rim, so the Taurus does look very similar. I guess I'll just have to be content with it being a NOID, I'm surprised the blooms have lasted so long especially after the nearly 90 degree temperature last week. I noticed the blooms have a very light fragrance too. Thumbs up
