If your experiences with daffodils has centered on yellow flowers with long cups, you're in for a pleasant surprise; lots of other color combinations and flower forms exist. Take narcissus Geranium for example: grown for hundreds of years, naturalizes well and returns dependably each spring. It's tazetta heritage provides the fabulous fragrance. Makes an excellent cut flower.
Geranium daffodils grow 15-18" tall and each stem produces a cluster of 5 or 6 creamy white flowers, each with a bright orange cup. The 2" blooms are deliciously fragrant.
Geranium was the 2016 winner of the American Daffodil Society's Wister Award, which is bestowed upon one cultivar annually in recognition of outstanding garden performance (versus show table criteria) for daffodils. A high honor indeed.
