Dear Friends, I am indeed honored to offer five Autumn Hybrids of Harold Koopowitz and Marilyn Howe. There has been a lot of interest in fall blooming narcissus lately. They broaden the season. Soon we may see fall Daffodil Shows in warmer climates, how exciting!! The five I am offering are all very different from one another and give us a glimpse of hybridization to come. The bulbs are priced individually.Enjoy!!

Narcissus are divided and color coded for identification.

Narcissus are classified by the Royal Horticulture Society into 13 Divisions.  Divisions 1-12 are of garden origin.

Division 1:      Trumpet

Division 2:      Large-cupped

Division 3:      Small-cupped

Division 4:      Double

Division 5:      Triandrus

Division 6:      Cyclamineus

Division 7:      Jonquilla and Apodanthus

Division 8:      Tazetta

Division 9:       Poeticus

Division 10:     Bulbocodium cultivars (or hybrids)

Division 11:     Split Corona (a) Collar, (b) Papillon

Division 12:     Daffodils that do not fit into other categories

Divisions 13:    Species and wild variants and hybrids

Color codes are as follows: y=yellow, w=white, o=orange, g=green, p=pink, r=red. If a daffodil is labeled y-y it means it has a yellow perianth and a yellow corona. These designations can become quite complicated if there are bands of color in the flower ie, Gipsy Queen 1 YYW-WWY.
