    Description

    The golden yellow trumpet flowers of Daffodils are unmistakable, but there are numerous cultivars in addition to the Wild Daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus). For this reason we treat all Cultivated Daffodils that are recorded in the wild as Narcissus agg. unless they have been identified to species level and confirmed by an expert. - For further information about identifying Daffodil species see http://www.thedaffodilsite.co.uk/.
