Brian – the N. asturiensis is so strange, I love it! Maybe we do need a class for “pinwheel” daffodils! Ethel Smith in MN where it snowed 6 inches on my birthday, right after I returned from a week in Florida! I do love Minnesota – really!

Something a little different.
1)  N. asturiensis  – an exhibitors nightmare? It may not be flat but symetry is not so bad! The extreme lobing and regular petal twist may conjure all kinds of lurid thoughts?
2) Who can guess the parentage of this little seedling?

    If I had that one in bloom at show time, I would definitely enter it in the division for species. I think shows should be educational, not only including the latest and greatest show flowers. I love shows that have a category for Novelty, as I think it allows for some odd ones as well!
