I would appreciate your help identifying one of Filoli’s tazetta daffodils shown blooming below in the bulb slope and throughout the estate on (2/28/2009). I believe this is Martha Washington but would like your comments.  It was  growing here in 1976 when Filoli, a property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation,  located in Woodside, CA. changed hands from private estate ownership. I suspect this might be  an original variety planted around 1918. For more information about this historic landmark visit our website at ( www.filoli.org).  
Thanks!

    Looks like Orange Prince or Halvose, too early for M washington and also M Washington is a pure white in perianth
