The Portland daffodil show was held at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden April 1 and 2. There were 242 entries by 15 exhibitors for a total of 548 stems. The local folks told me the season was later than usual and had not yet peaked although this was their last show of the season.

In the Classics Section there is an award for the best single-stem exhibit. The winner was ‘Unique’ 4W-Y (1961).

Classic 3-Stem Ribbon Winner exhibited by Theresa Fritchle

Classic 3-Stem Ribbon Winner exhibited by Theresa Fritchle

The best set of three in the Classics Section was ‘Avalanche’ 8W-Y (1955). ‘Avalanche’ is a cultivar that straddles the boundary between historics and classics. It was registered in 1955, but the comments in Daffseek add that it flowered before 1906.  I’ve seen it exhibited in the Historic Section of shows and am curious whether there’s a definitive rule whether it’s historic or classic.

Youth Best Bloom Ribbon Winner exhibited by Sarah Myton

Six Miniatures by Hybridizer Ribbon Winner exhibited by Steve Vinisky

Six Miniatures by Hybridizer Ribbon Winner exhibited by Steve Vinisky

The Miniatures Section of this show was modest in size but with a goodly display of seedlings by Steve Vinisky. The Six Miniatures by Hybridizer Ribbon is for six miniatures hybridized and originated by their exhibitor. Flowers in the winning exhibit are:
V03-43-6 7Y-Y ((‘Tanagra’ x ‘Roundita’) x ‘Cayenne’),
V03-9-14 7Y-Y ((N. calcicola [ex Salmon] x N. calcicola [ex Bankhead]) x N. calcicola [ex Bankhead]),
V05-10-10 7Y-Y (‘Cayenne’ x N. calcicola),
V93-218-12 6YYW-W ((‘Gipsy Queen’ x CC4/94) x (‘Gipsy Queen’ x CC4/94)),
V05-23-8 1Y-Y ((‘Small Talk’ x ‘Wee Bee’) x (‘Tanagra’ x ‘Wee Bee’)),
V04-14-16 2Y-O ((‘Tanagra’ x ‘Gipsy Queen’) x ‘Cayenne’).
The annotations [ex Salmon] and [ex Bankhead] mean the particular bulbs were from Michael Salmon and Delia Bankhead. Since the species are variable, the annotation points out the source of the bulbs used in the crosses. I don’t know what CC4/94 is or means, but I suspect it’s a seedling from Colin Crotty in New Zealand who has produced several miniature white cyclamineus daffodils.
