HORACE, 1894Rarest & Web-Only

Named for the Roman poet who celebrated country life and carpe diem, ‘Horace’ was once so popular that daffodil breeder P.D. Williams ranked it with the great ‘King Alfred’ as one of the two “outstanding successes” of its era. It’s another enduring gift to gardeners from the immortal George Engleheart, and truly a landmark daffodil. 9 W-GOR, 18-20”, zones 4a-7a(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

DA-984 3/$16.50 5/$26 SOLD OUT

INGLESCOMBE, 1912Rarest & Web-Only

Lemon chiffon pie? The fresh, light color of this rare double is hard to describe but refreshingly different from the bright yellows and golds of most daffodils. It’s distinct in shape, too, a fluffy poof of a flower, relaxed yet never sloppy. Prepare to meet a real individual! 4 Y-Y, 16-18”, z. 4a-7b(9bWC), Holland. Chart and care.

DA-87 3/$20 SOLD OUT

INSULINDE, 1921Rarest & Web-Only

‘Insulinde’ somehow manages to be both graceful and exuberant at the same time. Framed by a row or two of creamy white outer petals, its center is a throng of luminous orange petalets spiked with random flares of cream. Bred by the illustrious Mrs. Backhouse (of daffodil and lily fame), it’s named for a wildly popular Victorian novel set in Indonesia. 4 W-O, 21-23”, zones 5a-7b(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

DA-986 3/$12 SOLD OUT

KING ALFRED, 1899Rarest & Web-Only

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/$19.50 SOLD OUT

MRS. KRELAGE, 1912Rarest & Web-Only

Named for the wife of one of Holland’s greatest bulb-growers – so you know it has to be good – ‘Mrs. Ernst H. Krelage’ was once sold for a whopping $162 per bulb. Lost to American gardeners for years until we reintroduced it in 2011, it’s a sturdy, buxom flower of creamy white and palest lemon. 1 W-W, 18-20”, zones 4a-8a(10bWC), Holland. Chart and care.

DA-976 3/$20 SOLD OUT

MRS. WILLIAM COPELAND, 1930Rarest & Web-Only

It’s back! This extra-rare, white-on-white beauty completes the Copeland Family Double-Daffodil Trifecta. Mrs. Copeland was the mother of the lovely Irene and Mary Copeland, and the wife of the greatest breeder of double daffodils the world has ever known. (Read the family’s story here.) We imported a few bulbs of ‘Mrs. Copeland’ from Australia many years ago, and ever since then we’ve been looking forward to this beautiful mother and child reunion. 4 W-W, early-mid season, 18-20”, zones 4a-7b(9bWC), from Holland. Chart and care. Our grower is increasing his stock and we hope to offer it again soon. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

DA-977 3/$20 SOLD OUT

RUSTOM PASHA, 1930Rarest & Web-Only

It’s back! Named for a prize-winning “red” stallion raced back then by the Aga Khan, this bright, cheerful flower was one of the first with a truly orange, sun-proof cup. We managed to import a few bulbs of it from Australia in the 1990s and slowly built up stock, but the last time we had enough to offer it was in 2010. In other words, if you want it, you ’d be wise to order now! 2 Y-O, zones 5a-7b(8bWC), early-mid season, 18-20” from Holland. Chart and care.
