Seedling # V89-31-9 = White Star x Z5-3 (M. Evans, Ghost x Neahkahnie), S. J. Vinisky, USA, 2003, 1-2
An early flowering satin white trumpet for show. Not as consistent as my ideal but can give absolutely top notch show blooms. Opens a crisp, serene white. The well balanced, true trumpet is a perfect match to the 'Neahkahnie' style perianth. Has won its class and often in my early show collections and commercial exhibits. Strong grower with a "very good" overall rating for the bulb itself.
Sdlg # V90-13-9 = ( Comal x Midas Touch ), S. J. Vinisky, USA, 1999, 3
Superb, smooth, slightly upward facing (looks you in the eye) golden yellow trumpet that is ideal for exhibition. Much commented on in our Collections. The key traits are very wide, smooth, velvety segments which form a rounded flower and a long elegant trumpet that is gently ( and symmetrically ) flared at the mouth. The color is a clean and crisp mid-yellow. Has a polished finish. A most healthy and vigorous grower. A fine parent as well as a good seeder with potent pollen.
Seedling #V93-103-1 = [American Heritage x (Memento x Magician)], S.J. Vinisky, USA, 2006, Season 3-4
This may well be one of the most strikingly contrasted, highly colored show caliber Y-P trumpet daffodil yet in commerce. The mid yellow perianth has segments that are wide and smooth with the classic ace of spades shape. The minors are a touch narrower than the majors. Where the segments meet the trumpet, there is an intensely white band. The true trumpet is a deep, reddish pink that finishes with a lightly frilled and rolled rim. The trumpet also has the classic, narrow base that is so hard to achieve but gives an elegant, balanced and striking flower. I think this is a flower of significance. I predict it will become an important show flower. The photo has NOT been color enhanced or adjusted in any manner.
Sdlg. #V91-66-3 = (Gold Convention' x 'Tenterfield), S. J. Vinisky, USA, 2002, 2-3
Many awards to its credit as a seedling under number and after naming. A most graceful yet still a tall, large and imposing trumpet daffodil that can be massive when well grown. Has character and style with a truly beautiful pose that looks you in the eye. The perianth segments are wide, full and have a smoothly polished finish. The elegant, spare trumpet is evenly fluted and slightly expanded at the symmetric mouth. The entire flower is a vivid and bright polished golden yellow. Rarely nicks for us with a high percentage of flawless, show quality blooms. Excellent neck and strong dark skinned, healthy bulbs. Good growing reports from across the country. Has won the White, Rose, and Gold Ribbons! I believe that this flower will please even the most discriminating grower.
Seedling #V92-200-6 = (Corbiere x Uncle Duncan), S.J. Vinisky, USA, 2001, 2-3
An early season orange trumpet for show that has now settled in and is starting to win awards in multiple climates. A blend of the nicest attribute of both parent. Large, smooth, well overlapped, clean yellow perianth is the perfect foil for the mid orange, true trumpet corona. The cylindrical trumpet is pale orange on opening and deepens with age. Many flowers are of show caliber. Has been rougher than ideal in some years although capable of producing memorable, highly colored, show flowers. Fertile both ways and an especially heavy seeder. Excellent health and a rapid increaser.
