Thanks for the update. In the American Daffodil Show and Grow they list this cultivar as Erlicheer- Bred by Murray Gardiner with the year as 1934.
 
I like to tell a little story about these different bulbs when people new to daffodils are asking questions. This is a good one as I like to point out that the different countries the bulbs originated in and how old they are.
 
I had always heard that Earlicheer/Erlicheer was a sport of Grand Primo but I have not actually taken the time to look up the pedigree.
 
Twin Sisters I believe was n. Medioluteous but does not appear in the 2008 Show and Grow. Does anyone know if this got changed to something else or should I go back and look again when I wake up and the sun comes up. Does anyone know where there is an online list of the various species and where their original country where they were native to and ranges for them naturally occurring? Thanks Keith Kridler Mt.

    Keith, Dave and all,
    The RHS Register (from which the ADS gets information for the databank and Daffodils to Show and Grow) lists Earlicheer as a synonym of ‘Erlicheer’, and it lists ?’White Pearl’ sport under “Parent Notes.”
     
    You’ll find  x medioluteus listed in the very back of Daffodils to Show and Grow, under Intersectional Hybrids, just ahead of the ADS List of Miniatures.
     
    There are plans to add the species to DaffSeek.  Information on native country could be included there, after a search of existing literature.  Good idea, Keith.
