Daffodil Friends,
This is the earliest of my own seedlings to open – just a week ago. My seedlings are mostly second-, third, and fourth-generation viridiflorus seedlings. I used pollen from Manuel Lima’s seedlings. This one is: Apricot Blush x (Jetfire x viridiflorus).
I’m not a photographer – and simply can’t catch the nuances of the color in petals or cup. This bloom opens with a greenish cast (you have to think green) and also has a peachy blush from its pod parent. The green quickly fades and the apricot lessens after a few days. This is the maiden bloom.
