APRIL QUEEN, 1938        Rarest
Medieval troubadours sang of a frolicking April Queen who led young and old in a merry dance of spring. This brilliant beauty with its ruffled, flame-kissed cup dances for what seems like forever in the garden, lasting longer in bloom than any other daffodil we’ve ever grown. To the dance! 2 W-YYO, 16-18”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

AVALANCHE, 1906        
If daffodils were athletes, ‘Avalanche’ would be wearing Olympic gold. Extra vigorous, with 15-20 fragrant blossoms per stem, it’s so tough it was discovered in 1906 clinging to a sea-cliff in the Scilly Isles where tazettas had been grown by the millions in the 19th century. Superb in zones 6a-9b(11bWC), it’s also easy to force on pebbles for a winter treat. 8 W-Y, 16-18”, from Holland. Chart and care.

BANTAM, 1950        
This bright little RHS AGM-winner has been called “the best intermediate-sized daffodil for the garden.” If its flowers were any larger, its vivid yellow petals and sizzling orange-rimmed cup might be too much, but to us they seem just right – perky and full of life, like the spirited little roosters it’s named for. 2 Y-YOO, late blooming, 14-16”, zones 4a-8a(10aWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

BUTTER AND EGGS, 1777        Rarest
This charming name gets mistakenly applied to all sorts of double yellow daffodils, so let the buyer beware. Ours is the authentic Southern heirloom – hardy north to zone 5 – that’s been a folk favorite and passalong plant for centuries. Its soft yellow petals are interspersed with shorter ones of gold to almost orange, and even snooty William Robinson in The English Flower Garden praised it, as “handsome and abundant.” Aka N. incomparabilis aurantius plenus, 4 Y-Y, 16-18”, zones 5b-8b(10bWC), from Holland. Last offered in 2017. We are awaiting word from the grower if there will be enough to offer us next fall. Please subscribe to our newsletter for an alert.
N. x odorus, CAMPERNELLE, 1601        
Beware of imitations! Our Texas-grown bulbs are the true heirloom that has made itself at home since colonial days in old gardens throughout the South – and north through zone 6 at least. (We even have a customer growing them on the shores of Lake Superior.) With their distinctively lobed cups, our true Campernelles are early, fragrant, and full of the grace and staying-power of wildflowers. You’ll have more and more every year! Aka Large Jonquil, 13 Y-Y, 10-14”, zones 6a-8b(10bWC), from Texas. Chart and care.

CARLTON, 1927        
“There is nothing better,” wrote the immortal Henry Mitchell, “still unsurpassed for planting in quantity.” Lightly scented of vanilla, ‘Carlton’ increases vigorously from North Dakota to Florida and beyond – and it’s frugally priced! 2 Y-Y, 18-20”, zones 3a-9a(11bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

DAPHNE, 1914        Rarest
This refined double pheasant’s-eye was first found amid thousands of ‘Ornatus’ forced under glass and cut for the London market. Since there was no way to tell which bulb it came from, all were replanted outdoors – and two years later this jewel reappeared. 4W-W, 21-23”, zones 5a-7a(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

N. x odorus ‘Plenus’, DOUBLE CAMPERNELLE, 1601        
With dozens of petals neatly nested together as if in a perfect miniature rose – and just as fragrant – this tough little double daffodil has been grown and loved for over 400 years. 4 Y-Y, 10-12”, zones 6a-8b(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.
