IRENE COPELAND, 1915

This is the neatest double daffodil we’ve ever seen. With creamy white petals arranged just so and trimmed with bits of pale primrose yellow, it would look perfect on an Edwardian lady’s Easter bonnet. For a photo of the real Irene and her sister Mary along with their fascinating story as told to us by Irene’s daughter, click here. 4 W-Y, 16-18”, zones 4a-7b(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

DA-20 5/$12 SOLD OUT

JENNY, 1943Rarest

The Royal Horticultural Society and our crew here at OHG agree – this is a wonderful little daffodil. Winner of the RHS AGM, it’s a strong grower with flowers that open white and yellow, mature to almost pure white, and look like miniature shooting stars. Try it, as our friend John Shipton recommends, paired with blue Scilla siberica or grape hyacinths. 6 W-W, early-mid, 12-14”, zones 5a-8a(10aWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

JOHN EVELYN, 1920Rarest

From the creator of the great Copeland family trio — ‘Irene’, ‘Mary’, and ‘Mrs. William’ — comes this rare flower with round, creamy white petals and a wonderfully ruffled cup of apricot-gold maturing to lemon. (Read the family’s story here.) Its name honors the great 17th-century diarist and author of books about everything from trees (his famous Sylva) to “sallets.” 2 W-O, early blooming, 18-20”, 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.

N. jonquilla, JONQUIL, EARLY LOUISIANA, 1612

“The sweetest smelling flower your grandmother grew,” says our friend Celia Jones of Sisters’ Bulb Farm near Shreveport, and for many Southerners N. jonquilla’s fragrance is the essence of spring. With clusters of nickel-sized flowers that seem made for fairies, our true, American-heirloom “French” strain blooms much earlier than the widely-offered Dutch strains. Aka Sweeties, Simplex, Cologne Bottle, and more; 13 Y-Y, 8-10”, zones 6b-8b(10bWC), from Texas. Chart, care, and learn more.

KING ALFRED, 1899Rarest

True stock! You may think you’ve grown this landmark daffodil, but since the 1950s most bulbs sold in the US as ‘King Alfred’ have been newer, over-sized impostors that were easier to mass-produce in the mild, moist Dutch climate. The real ‘King’ is actually so rare today that we can’t offer it every year, but we have a small supply this fall from Holland’s greatest daffodil collector — and it’s gold, bold, and everything a world famous icon should be. Y-Y, 21-23", 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-23 3/$17.55 5/$27.90 10/$52.20 SOLD OUT

LOUISE DE COLIGNY, 1940Rarest

So many of you asked for this sweet-scented, apricot beauty that we kept knocking on doors until we found the one last Dutch farmer growing it. Its form can be unruly, but its apricot shading and light, enchanting perfume have won it many fans. Its name honors the remarkable wife of William the Silent. 2W-YYP, 18-20”, zones 4a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

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/$10.50 5/$16.80 10/$31.15 25/$70.70 SOLD OUT

N. x italicus, MINOR MONARQUE, 1809Rarest

Often the first tazetta to bloom in the new year, this sturdy pass-along plant has narrow, pointed petals that make its clustered blooms look like fistfuls of stars. As Texas bulb expert Thad Howard wrote, it’s “enduring, sweet-scented” and “deserves more respect and popularity.” 8 W-Y, 20”, zones 8a-9b(10bWC), from Alabama. Chart and care.

DA-963 3/$5.40 5/$8.70 10/$16.20 25/$36.60 50/$67.80 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/$10.13 10/$19.13 25/$43.50 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/$6.83 10/$13 25/$29.25 SOLD OUT
