Ooops...meant "what are your" not "what you're"...geesh;)

RE: What you're favorite LARGE large-cupped Daffodil???

After I read the Subject line, and before I read 'your' answer, Fortissimo immediately came to mind. It is huge, and so showy, and last year the blooms lasted so long. This year it seems the blooms didn't hold up as well, and I think the warmer temps, and strong winds might have been to blame.

Fortissimo at Daffseek.

for large cuped Daffodils, I like Ice Follie Daffodils! and I really like my all yellow Daffodils that I bought under the name "King Alfred" I like that They have nice large open cups, and there almost in full bloom right now!

I'm trying to think of another but for me it's also fortissimo!

Ok, so I thought of another..... "amor". for me it's a nice large cupped flower that's long lasting. The pictures on daffseek are much more orange cupped than mine, mine are definately more yellow.

Still love it though.

I have many favorites among the Large Cupped. I agree about Fortissimo It is among the first to bloom and I have it in a large grouping. Love it. Then I also really like Pineapple Prince, love the contrast
Pineapple Prince 4/10
also like Billy Graham, it's a little hard to capture it in a pic, it is such as nice pink cup with yellow petals.

Oh, also Fragrant Rose, it does so well for me. Geezz, looks like I can't just pick one favorite. :) Cindy
