By George - (2 Y-Y) one of the showiest flowers in our garden; soft yellow, overlapping rounded petals surround a peachy/pink cup that has a much darker pink edge and looks as if it's frosted with a bit of white icing; quite unusual and eye-catching; 14"-16"; midseason.

Daffodils are the most cost effective, pest-free perennial plants available and make wonderful companions with other bulbs, perennials, annuals and flowering shrubs. They grow in almost all areas of the United States as long as there is a discernible winter. They are pest-free and when given ample sunlight, water and proper nutrition, will provide early spring color for many years. They are divided into 13 divisions according to their flower shape and heritage and we have put the American Daffodil Society's descriptions in quotes ("") and caps at the beginning of each division. Daffodils should be planted in full sun or at least 1/2 day (8 hours)of direct sunlight after the leaves are on the trees and should be planted 3x the height of their bulb deep (3"-8")in compost enriched soil. The ADS defines DIVISION 2 - LARGE CUP as: "One flower to a stem; corona or cup more than one-third but less that equal to the length of the perianth segments or petals". This is the group that you see the most often used in gardens. Perfect for perennializing, picking, forcing and showing. Some of the showiest daffodils are in this division. 16+ cm bulbs unless otherwise noted; 3-4 per sq. ft; zones 3-8
