Here you’ll find our VERY rarest bulbs along with late finds and others we simply couldn’t squeeze into our print catalog.

Those marked “Web-Only & Rarest” are sometimes in such short supply that they sell out within days — and some years we can’t offer them at all — so if you see one you like, we recommend you order it now!

ADMIRATION, 1912        Rarest & Web-Only
It’s back! With an amber-orange cup ringed by golden-white petals like “the soft taffeta silk which in the old days was known as sarsenet” (Wayside Gardens, 1936), this elegant poetaz is now one of the oldest of that hardy, cluster-flowered clan. And its fragrance is delicious! 8 Y-O 14-16”, zones 6a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care. With luck we will have more available later this summer. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

ALBUS PLENUS ODORATUS, 1601        Web-Only
Snowy white, richly fragrant, and hardy to zone 3, double pheasant’s-eyes appear on almost every daffodil list from Clusius’s in 1601 to catalogs of the early 1900s. Although they can be erratic bloomers, in long, cool springs and well-watered soils they’re heavenly. N. poeticus ‘Plenus’, 4 W-W, 16-18”, zones 3a-6b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.
ANNE FRANK, 1959        Rarest & Web-Only
Named for the girl whose indomitable spirit lives on in her immortal diary, this exceptionally rare double combines stainless white outer petals with a heart of deep, vibrant red-orange. It’s a dazzling daffodil – and a visual metaphor for Anne herself. 4 W-O, late-mid, 18-20”, zones 4-8a(10aWC), from Holland. Chart and care.
Limit 5, please.
BEERSHEBA, 1923        Rarest & Web-Only
This immaculate classic with its slender trumpet is early-blooming, free-flowering, quick to increase, and a lovely, warm ivory. Introduced by the good Rev. Engleheart when he was in his 70s, it won high praise from Guy Wilson, the century’s greatest daffodil breeder, as “a flower of arresting beauty and outstanding purity.” 1 W-W, 14-16”, zones 4a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.
Limit 10, please.
CASSANDRA, 1897        Rarest & Web-Only
It’s back! This very rare Victorian pheasant’s eye is another treasure from the illustrious Rev. Engleheart who gave the world ‘Beersheba’, ‘Lucifer’, ‘White Lady’, and many others. In 1905, the British Saturday Review praised its petals of “driven snow,” cup edged with “deep madder,” and “heart of pure green.” 9WC-GWYR, 18-20”, zones 4a-7a(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.
Limit 10, please.
CROESUS, 1912        Rarest & Web-Only
With ruffled disks of orange-gold set against smooth, elegantly rounded petals of cream, this classic beauty is named for the fabulously wealthy King Croesus of Lydia who minted the world’s first coins. Plant it and you’ll be rich in beauty for years to come! 2 Y-YYO, 17-19”, zones 4a-7b(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.
EARLY PEARL, 1899        Rarest & Web-Only
Nameless but thriving, ‘Early Pearl’ was rediscovered in old gardens of the Southeast’s “Spanish Moss Belt.” Early to bloom and best where summers are hot, it has starry white petals, tiny citron cups that mature to white, and a fresher scent than most tazettas. Experts believe it dates to the late 1800s. 8 W-Y, 14-16”, zones 8a-9b(11bWC), big, fat California bulbs. Chart and care.
HENRY IRVING, 1885        Rarest & Web-Only
Every spring in the quaint old parterre garden at Keukenhof, Holland’s wonderland of bulbs, this charming antique trumpet launches the show. And who was Henry Irving? Visit to learn more about the Victorian actor who still has a fan club 100 years after his death. 1 Y-Y, 15-16”, zones 4a-8b(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.
INGLESCOMBE, 1912        Rarest & Web-Only
It’s back! Lemon chiffon pie? The fresh, light color of this rare double is hard to describe but refreshingly different from the bright yellows and golds of most daffodils. It’s distinct in shape, too, a fluffy poof of a flower, relaxed yet never sloppy. Prepare to meet a real individual! 4 Y-Y, 16-18”, z. 4a-7b(9bWC), Holland. Chart and care. With luck we will have more available later this summer. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
DA-87 3/$20 5/$31.50 SOLD OUT
INSULINDE, 1921        Rarest & Web-Only
‘Insulinde’ somehow manages to be both graceful and exuberant at the same time. Framed by a row or two of creamy white outer petals, its center is a throng of luminous orange petalets spiked with random flares of cream. Bred by the illustrious Mrs. Backhouse (of daffodil and lily fame), it’s named for a wildly popular Victorian novel set in Indonesia. 4 W-O, 21-23”, zones 5a-7b(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.
