Large yellow daffodils are the kind everyone expects to see dancing in the spring breeze, and this is one of the largest and finest. The colour is flawless, an intense bright yellow with a very smooth uniform finish. Although sometimes forced and grown as pot plant for display or cutting, it is the supreme variety for massing in borders, parts of the lawn or under trees. As with all popular varieties, different-sized bulbs are available and the largest is the one to buy for maximum impact in its first season. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
