Please ID my Daffodil

This daff has nice scent. Last year they ended up as cut flowers and the previous years I staked them out as their stem can hardly support their weight.



Thank you so much.

I am not sure. Have you tried Maybe you could find it on there.

RE: Please ID my Daffodil

Without actually seeing it in person, and comparing it to the actual named variety, it is very hard to say with any degree of certainty just what it might be named.

Where did it come from?
Did it just come with the house?
How long ago?
Bought it?
Remember where? A big box store like Lowe's or Walmart?

I have a guess once those things are answered...but then again, it is just my guess.


RE: Please ID my Daffodil

Thank you Daffodilgirl for for the info. I am also trying to ID it myself thru the net but no result.

Sue, this daff came with the house. It is about 100 years old from what my husband told me. He is the third owner and never moved or touch anything from the garden except the peonies which he dug because of the ants. I am thinking that this is an heirloom.

Here is some more daffs from the garden.

Bella Estrella Daff
Thank you

I would guess that the last picture, the one with the white outer petals and the yellow cup is N. 'Ice Follies'. I grow them by the hundreds. The first pictures of the yellow one with the double cup may be N. 'Cheerfulness' but that is also just a guess.

John, thank you for the IDs. Even if you say they're just guesses, it is a start. I appreciate your help.
