Can You Help?

There are quite a few “Possible Intermediates” which are missing measurements, either because it wasn’t recorded on the Application to Register, or the cultivar was registered when measurements weren’t routinely recorded.  If you grow any of these cultivars, would you please measure the diameter of the flower and send the results to me at .  We’ll use the average measurement to determine if a cultivar belongs on the Intermediates List.  This will help any confusion the judges may have.  Thank you.

    Mary Lou,

    I have a lot of them, but some bloomed in February and are now past bloom and collapsed. I’ll try to help with others that are still alive. You just need the diameter of the flower, correct? Not all the measurements?

    ‘American Banker’, ‘Cayenne’, ‘Elrond’, Green Pearl’, ‘Pogo’, ‘Rimksi’, ‘Treasure Waltz’, ‘Urchin’, ‘Mighty Mite’, and ‘Tom Terrific’.

    Our Ice age is ending today. I’ll see what I can find in the flower beds shortly. I had some of the others but over the years lost them.

    Right, Clay.  Just the diameter.

    Mary Lou,

    I have ‘Cayenne’ as 66mm in diameter. This is one of three that has been down for 2 years. The other two have collapsed and are heavy with seed pod as I use them for hybridizing “miniatures” I hope. They were all similar in size and color.

    I have the following and will measure them when they come up next month.  Daphne, Dreamlight, and Rimkski.  I’ll try to watch for the others at the shows I go to.

    Mary Lou,

    I toured my garden today and the only thing I have left in bloom of the daffodils that needed diameter measurements is ‘Mighty Mite’ which is 77mm. All the remainder are either bloomed and now faded or a long way into the future.

    Thanks Rose, I appreciate it.  And Clay, I’ve made a note about ‘Mighty Mite’ and if any late ones appear, I’d appreciate any measurements.

    Mary Lou,

    I do not have measurements but I grow both ‘Bambi’ and ‘Whippersnapper’ and both are accurately on the NZNDS Intermediate list.
    ‘Suffragette’ (Cull’) is too big.

    Thanks, Dave.  I’ve made a note about them.
