Autumn Pearl

Avalanche of Gold

Avalanche

Blooms in late February or early March here (central California coast).

The sturdiest of the named varieties, having very neatly formed white flowers, rounded in shape, with lemon cups of fairly strong color. The very strong stems carry a cluster of from 15-27 or more florets, making a very impressive cluster, ideal for flower shows. Has a very pleasant sweet fragrance, somewhat like that on the Double Chinese type, but distinct.

A very vigorous plant, making excellent bulbs that increase well and flower abundantly. Also of hybridizing value as it will set seed, especially if repeat pollinated as the florets age, and can be used as a pollen parent as well. Will cross with standard daffodils and others. Does well in wet or dry locations.
