N. hispanicus, MAXIMUS, TRUMPET MAJOR, 1576Rarest

Celebrated in gardens for over 400 years, ‘Maximus’ or ‘Trumpet Major’ is an especially fine form of N. hispanicus with a wild, primeval look. Its trumpet is boldly scalloped and flared, its petals make a dramatic star, and it lifts up its face as if worshipping the sun. It’s been treasured by Elizabethan, Victorian, and Arts-and-Crafts gardeners alike – and now it’s your turn! 1 Y-Y, 14-16”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

DA-88 3/$15 5/$24 10/$44.50 25/$101 50/$188 SOLD OUT

N. MOSCHATUS, 1604Rarest

Swans-Neck, Goose-Neck, Silver Bells – if you’re looking for that elusive Southern heirloom, this form of the wild N. moschatus may not be 100% identical but probably even your granny couldn’t tell them apart. It’s short and sweet, with creamy white blooms that nod demurely, the epitome of spring. (See also the very similar ‘Colleen Bawn’.) Aka N. cernuus, 13 W-W, 10-12”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart, care, and learn more. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

DA-979 5/$9 10/$17 25/$39 50/$72 100/$133 SOLD OUT

MRS. BACKHOUSE, 1921

Known for decades as THE pink daffodil, ‘Mrs. R.O. Backhouse’ is one of the landmark bulbs of the 20th century. She’s more truly ivory and apricot, but so beautiful – a veritable sunrise for those who watch closely – that most modern pinks just can’t compare. 2 W-P, 16-18”, zones 4a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

DA-26 5/$10.50 10/$20 25/$45 50/$84 100/$156 SOLD OUT

NIVETH, 1931Rarest

This refined, up-town cousin of everybody’s favorite ‘Thalia’ sets the hearts of daffodil connoisseurs aflutter. It’s sublimely graceful, with smoother, thicker, more shapely petals of a white that expert Michael Jefferson-Brown calls “dazzling in its purity.” 5 W-W, 18-20”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

DA-994 3/$15 5/$24 10/$44.50 25/$101 50/$188 SOLD OUT

ORNATUS, 1870Rarest & It’s Back!

This is not your usual pheasant’s-eye! It’s the earliest blooming of that season-ending clan, two weeks ahead of the traditional pheasant’s-eye, N. p. recurvus (below). And though it’s hardy to -15° F, it also thrives in Southern heat that’s often death to its kin. With snowy white petals, a small yellow eye ringed with red-orange, and spicy fragrance. 9 W-YYR, 16-18”, zones 5a-7b(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

DA-69 3/$14.50 5/$23 10/$43 25/$98 50/$181 100/$334 SOLD OUT

N. poeticus recurvus, PHEASANT’S EYE, 1600, 1831

The poet’s narcissus grows wild in alpine meadows from Spain into the Balkans and is pictured in English herbals of the early 1600s. This form is the oldest available and, though it dates officially to 1831, it’s indistinguishable from those in colonial gardens. It’s famously fragrant and late-blooming, with sparkling white petals that arch back from a “green eye and crimson-fringed crown” (William Robinson). Wister Award winner (see more), 13 W-YYR, 12-14”, zones 4a-6b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

DA-30 5/$10.50 10/$20 25/$45 50/$84 100/$156 SOLD OUT

POLAR ICE, 1936Rarest

Although it’s disappearing from the marketplace, this sparkling white daffodil is just too good to let go. Its broad white petals surround a tiny, ruffled cup that opens citron yellow and matures to pure white with a cool glimmer of spring green deep in the center. 3 W-W, mid-late blooming, 14-18”, zones 4a-7b(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

DA-936 3/$14 5/$22 10/$41.50 25/$94.50 50/$175 SOLD OUT

N. gayi, PRINCEPS, 1830Rarest

Extra-early and extra-beautiful, this wildflowery trumpet daffodil is a bicolor N. pseudonarcissus (see Lent lily). Millions were once harvested for bouquets sold in London’s Covent Garden, and it’s great for naturalizing. As daffodil connoisseur Alec Gray wrote in 1955, “a drift of it is a thing of... lightness and grace.” 1 W-Y, 14-16”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

DA-31 3/$10 5/$16 10/$29.50 SOLD OUT

QUEEN OF THE NORTH, 1908

With her elegant, snow-white petals and fluted lemon cup, this ‘Queen’ is as cool as a frosty glass of lemonade. “Certainly one of the most beautiful of all daffodils,” the great Pennsylvania plantsman John Wister wrote in 1930, and she’s still winning blue ribbons in daffodil shows all across the country today! 3 W-Y, 16-18”, zones 4a-7b(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

DA-33 5/$11.50 10/$21.50 25/$49.50 50/$92 SOLD OUT

RIP VAN WINKLE, 1884

‘Rip’ is a definite cutie. Early and dwarf, its spiky little blooms look like tiny yellow suns, cactus dahlias, sea anemones, or even mop-headed elves – depending on your imagination. It’s also cheap and wonderfully easy to force. 4 Y-Y, 6-8”, zones 4a-7b(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

DA-34 10/$14.50 25/$33.50 50/$62.50 100/$116 250/$261 SOLD OUT
