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.

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 & Web-Only

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.

N. x medioluteus, TWIN SISTERS, 1597Web-Only

“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. 7Y-GYY, 9-12” very late blooming, zones 6a-8b(10bWC), from Holland.

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.

XIT, 1948

“So small, so pure,” says bulb maven Anna Pavord, you might think it’s “at heart a snowdrop but was given the wrong clothes.” Just six inches tall and frosty white, it was bred from a wild species that grows high in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and named for the dwarf knight in a series of novels set amid the intrigue of Tudor England. (Game of Thrones, anyone?) Best in acid to neutral soils, 3 W-W, late-mid, 5-7”, zones 6a-8a(10bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.
