ALBATROSS, 1891Rarest & It’s Back!

With propeller-like petals and a frilled cup dipped in orange, this late Victorian treasure outshines its sibling ‘Seagull’ and was proudly described by the immortal Rev. Engleheart as “one of my finest and most brilliantly colored” creations. 3 W-YYO, late-mid, 18-20”, zones 4a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

ALBUS PLENUS ODORATUS, 1601

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.

APRIL QUEEN, 1938Rarest

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.

BATH’S FLAME, 1913Rarest

Once celebrated as a larger, improved ‘Conspicuus’, this rare beauty features velvety primrose petals and an orange-kissed cup. After a lifetime of farming daffodils – and breeding award-winning new ones – our friend Ron Scamp of Cornwall ranks it as one of his three favorite heirlooms. By the good Rev. Engleheart, father of ‘Beersheba’, ‘White Lady’, and other enduring classics, 3 Y-YYO, 16-18”, zones 5a-7b(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

BEERSHEBA, 1923Rarest

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.

BROUGHSHANE, 1938Rarest

Named for the tiny Irish hometown of its creator Guy Wilson – the 20th century’s grand master of white daffodils – beefy ‘Broughshane’ features creamy white petals and a deeply ruffled trumpet of white with hints of amber, all set off by handsome, blue-green, almost leek-like foliage. 1 W-W, 18-20”, zones 4a-7b(9bWC), from Holland.

BUTTER AND EGGS, 1777Rarest

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. Chart and care.
