Rip van Winkle - (4 Y-Y) (pumilis plenus) division 4, double; variable, old fashioned yellow flower that resembles a dandelion; a 'ragamuffin', to quote our friend, Phyllis, that looks like it's having a 'bad hair day', but is endearing to all who see it; all yellow with green segments interspersed; Heirloom; 1884; 5"-8"; early-midseason; no longer on the Approved Miniature List, but would get lost amoung the other Division 4 doubles.

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. Daffodils should be planted in full sun or at least 6 hours a day of sunlight after the leaves are on the trees and should be planted 3x the height of their bulb deep (3"-8"). MINIATURE DAFFODILS - not a separate division, but those cultivars that are about 6" tall or less. Most on our list are approved by the American Daffodil Society as being appropriate for the miniature list. (Note: climate, soil and site conditions will sometimes encourage some miniatures to grow over or under the normal 6 inches.
