STILTON, 1909Rarest

Bred by Devonshire nurseryman E.B. Champernowne, the man who gave the world ‘Red Devon’, this much rarer daffodil survives from the Golden Age of pheasant’s-eyes. We have just 100 bulbs this year from one of Holland’s greatest daffodil collectors, and it could be years before he has any more to share with us, so get it while you can! 9 W-YYR, late blooming, 14-16”, zones 4a-7a(9bWC). Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

SUN DISC, 1946

Praised as “one of the most perfect of all daffodils” by expert Michael Jefferson-Brown, and famed for its incredible vigor, this little jonquil has won two of the garden world’s highest honors, the ADS Wister Award and the RHS Award of Garden Merit. Its unusual, circular shape makes it a real eye-catcher in the garden, and like all jonquils it’s fragrant! By Alec Gray, 7 Y-Y, 8-12”, late, zones 6a-8b(10bWC), from Holland. See all of our Wister Award-winners. Chart and care.

THALIA, 1916

Orchids or doves? With 2-3 nodding flowers per stem and ivory petals that swoop dramatically back from the cup, ‘Thalia’ may well remind you of both. It’s a strong, dependable grower North and South, the oldest garden form of the wild N. triandrus, and the 2013 winner of the ADS’s Wister Award! 5 W-W, 14-16”, zones 4a-8b(10bWC), from Holland.

N. obvallaris, THE TENBY DAFFODIL, 1796

This sweet little teddy bear of a daffodil has grown wild for centuries on the coast of Wales, and its early blooms were once rushed to London to be sold at Covent Garden. Its trumpet is shorter than most wild daffodils (see Lent lily), adding to its pudgy charm. 2015 Wister Award winner (see more), 13 Y-Y, 8-10”, zones 5a-8b(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

TWINK, 1925Rarest

This Jazz Age classic has long, rippling petals of primrose-to-cream flaring jauntily out of a ruffled center of orange and gold. Hardy north through zone 5, it’s especially well-loved in the South because, unlike many other doubles, it opens reliably even there. 4 Y-O, mid-season, 18-20”, zones 5a-8b(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.

N. x medioluteus, TWIN SISTERS, 1597

“Generally knowne everywhere,” wrote the great herbalist John Gerard in 1597 about this fragrant wildflower he called Primrose Peerless. Today its many folk names which include Loving Couples, Cemetery Ladies, and April Beauty attest to its wide-spread popularity and endurance.With two blooms per stem, white with tiny citron cups, it’s also wonderfully late-blooming. Formerly N. biflorus, 13 W-Y, 12-14”, zones 6a-8b(10bWC), from Texas. Chart and care.

VAN SION, 1620

Aka ‘Telamonius Plenus’, this ancient flower is “the most important of all doubles” (A.M. Kirby, 1907). It’s also the double most often found at old homesites, multiplying without care. And it’s the most confusing. In its first year or a perfect spot, its doubling is neatly contained within the trumpet. Most years, though, it all explodes into a wild froth of green and gold. See what we mean and learn more here. 4 Y-Y, 14-16”, zones 4a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

VIREO, 1962Rarest

“Nature’s first green is gold,” Robert Frost wrote, and it’s the vivid green deep in the cup of this great little jonquil that sets it apart, giving its lemony flowers a distinct, fresh, spring-time feeling. Named for a small olive-green songbird, it was bred by America’s greatest daffodil breeder, Grant Mitsch, who was also an avid birder. Last offered in 2009, 7Y-GYY, 9-12” very late blooming, zones 6a-8b(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

WHITE LADY, 1897Rarest

This “regal beauty” and “good doer” is “the daffodil I now prefer to all others” – so wrote Mrs. Francis King in 1921, and since she was a founder of the Garden Club of America and author of nine popular garden books, that’s high praise indeed. With sparkling petals and a ruffled yellow cup, ‘White Lady’ is old-fashioned but full of life. 3W-Y, 16-18”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

W.P. MILNER, 1869

Short and sweet, this quaint little elf dates back to the dawn of the Victorian daffodil renaissance. Its nodding trumpet and twisted petals are a soft, silvery yellow that seems to be the embodiment of spring sunshine. As an added treat for inquiring noses, it has a light cowslip fragrance. 1 W-W, 6-8”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.
