Lawrence,
I’m interested on your perspective on green daffodils regarding the green being an indication of undeveloped flower parts.
I guess the two current leading exponents in the development of green daffodils are Bob Spotts and John Hunter. Interesting that Bob has gone more for green over yellow and John more for green over white. Having seen green in many flowers I would concur that it is from undeveloped parts of the flower however having seen some of John and Bob’s flowers I would suggest that the green colour is overlaid on the original colour and therefore more natural. Your response?
Dave
