2013 Autumn HybridsDear 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
Narcissus are classified by the
Royal Horticulture Society into 13 Divisions. Divisions 1-12 are of garden origin.
Jonquilla and Apodanthus
Bulbocodium cultivars (or hybrids)
Division 11: Split
Corona (a) Collar, (b) Papillon
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,
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.
