Daffodil ‘Rijnveld’s Early Sensation’

Narcissus 'Rijnveld's Early Sensation'

This trumpet-cupped daffodil was first introduced in 1956, and as you would guess, is an “early” daffodil. Which makes for a good try here in Austin, as most of what keeps daffodils from doing well is either the lack of cold winter, or the very hot spring when most of the big trumpets and big cups bloom. It was the first of all the big daffodils to bloom in my garden, following shortly after the early jonquils and their pretty, fragrant flowers.

These are big and yellow and bloomy and all that is classic daffodil.
