Sdlg # V94-233-5 = Beauvallon x V90-15-9 = (Resplendent x Loch More), S. J. Vinisky, USA, 2007, 3
Glowing yellow red double with fine form and good substance. An earlier show flower than most having this deep color and good form. Strong grower and good increaser. About 25% of the blooms have pollen and 10% come with stigma when down two or more season. Much liked here.

Crackington - 4Y-O
Seedling # 75/35A = Golden Aura x Beauvallon, David A. Lloyd, England, 1986, Season 3-4
One of the top double flowers across the USA and much favored here. Has been a superlative parent (both seed and pollen) here as well. Highly regular, symmetric show form. Displays two distinct forms. Mostly large, full and regular. Some few stems have their petals held in highly symmetric whorls with each whorl of decreasing size. DaffSeek has photos of both styles of flowering. Highly recommended as it is one of the best.

Double Play - 4Y-Y
V91-10-5 = (Golden Amber x Crackington), S.J. Vinisky, USA, 2005, 2-3
Perhaps the best overall show flower from this remarkable cross. A choice blending of both outstanding parents finest attributes. Very wide, satin smooth perianth segments have thick substance. The segments back evenly distributed and often symmetrical whorls of petaloids that open with a slight orange tinge but quickly pass to a yellow that is a few shades darker than the perianth. The stem, neck and pose are close to ideal. This fine double has gotten high marks and much positive comment from diverse climates by those that have been sent it for evaluation. I think that this will be a most dependable show double. May have the occasional stigma and/or anther for breeders. Good stock that give vigorous increase. Won the white ribbon for Best In Show at St. Louis last spring for friend, Larry Force of Mississippi. Most unusual and a high compliment for any double! Recommended.

Fortescue - 4W-R
Seedling # 147/84 = (Glowing Red x Potent), Jackson’s Daffodils, Tasmania, 1992, 3
I was fortunate enough to obtain this stellar double under number at an A.D.S. Auction. If it was whiter and a tad bit larger, it would be a PERFECT flower. Truly an exceptional flower for show that is winning its share of awards. A whitish perianth with superb substance. The petaloids are notable for the deep red color and the unusually symmetrical arrangements. The neck is longish but has an absolutely “dead on” pose. Blooms at main show season but with the quality of later season doubles. As I said above, it can be perfect. A fine, extremely choice, show double. Recommend.

Last Call - 4Y-R
Seedling # V90-7-2 = (Smokey Bear x Solar Tan), S. J. Vinisky, USA, 2004, 5-6
An exceptionally formed, highly consistent late double. Blooming at the start of the poets, this sophisticated late double provides strong, intense yellow red coloration. It stands out among the mostly white perianth flowers generally in flower this late in the season. The heavy, thick substance of the brilliant, deep golden perianth has with an almost translucent, glowing appearance. The coronal segments are even and quite regular in form and are of a dark, rich reddish orange. It does have a longer neck than I’d like but the flower is held at an ideal pose. Good health and vigor as well as a fine bulb.

Lemon Puff - 4W-Y
Sdlg. # V91-10-3 =(Golden Amber x Crackington), S. J. Vinisky, USA, 2002, 3
Has steadily advanced to become a dependable, highly rated seedling while under number. Strong stems and a short neck which holds the flower at 90 degrees. No green backs on it here in Oregon. The perianth has the width, substance and ultra smoothness of the seed parent. The petaloid segments are often evenly distributed giving a most symmetric flower. A lovely bicolor at peak bloom. May show a touch of apricot or peach coloration in favorable seasons. Blooms at early main season and has often been in winning collections. The photo shows a bloom of a secondary stem. Main stems have fuller flowers. Similar in this respect to ‘Crackington’. Excellent and dependable show double.

Miss Peach - 4Y-P
V94-112-9 = Baldock x Night Music, S. J. Vinisky, USA, 2010, Season 3-4
The first of two yellow/pink doubles for show introduced this year. (See: 'Tropical Punch' below for the second). This show double has a most unusual color value. Truly the color of a ripe peach although color coded as a Y-P. Smooth, wide perianth is a perfect foil for the pinky/peachy petaloids. Elegant, unusual, and a sensational color. We think this will be a fine show flower. Another that has received enthusiastic comments in shows and under evaluation.

Orange Marmalade - 4W-O
Sdlg. # V91-107-1 = (Tamar Fire x Golden Strand), S. J. Vinisky, USA, 2003, 3
I’ve gotten some very nice doubles with ‘Tamar Fire’ as a seed parent. ‘Orange Marmalade’ will sunburn but what an unusual, scrumptious orange color. A very distinctive and notable double of the highest quality. Wide, overlapped perianth segments are milk white, smooth, glistening and precise with fine symmetry. The petaloids are a warm, bright, melting orange color. Good stems and necks from both parents. ‘ Golden Strand’ added size and passed on its color. Also nice bulbs. Striking show double if cut just as it develops the W-O color and then held cool. Recommended.

Sabot Hill - 4W-Y
Seedling # 66/2 = Ave x Gay Time, William G. Pannill, USA, 1994, 4-5
Large, refined double from the uncompromising eye of our talented friend, Bill Pannill. Thoughtful cross by Bill of Guy Wilson's splendid white, 'Ave' times J. Lionel Richardson's Award of Merit double, 'Gay Time'. Tall stems with a great neck and close to ideal pose. Wide, smooth perianth segments do show some green in the odd season but have good width and a satiny smooth finish. The inner segments are often quite regular and symmetric which, we find, is not the norm for many doubles. Opens here with a touch of orange (as in its grandparent, 'Limerick) but quickly passes to a crisp yellow. If you are a fancier of Bill Pannill's world class flowers, this is a flower you must try. A favored double here for late shows. Recommended.

Seedling #V94-43-7 = (Baldock x Capree Elizabeth), S. J. Vinisky, USA, 2010, Season 3-4
There are not too many double daffodils registered with this rare color code. Believed to be one of the most deeply colored available in this class. Excellent stem and neck. Wide, overlapped back petals are slightly incurved but symmetric. Mid yellow back petals are a perfect foil for the rich pink petaloid inner segments. Decent show flower giving an average number of nicely formed show blooms. Occasionally has a stigma and a bit of pollen. The photo color is a good approximation of the flowers color value.
