Daffnetters,
I received these two photos and was asked if we could help with identification. The name on the bulbs was Salome.
Thank you all,

    I take this as Pinza, which is in common trade in big box stores along with Salome, and which has the same distinctive grading of the corona color. It is in bloom now in Livermore, CA, and comes just after Monal, but well before Salome. Melissa

    Thank you Melissa. One more thing, this question came from the Southeast area of the United States. Thanks all,

    Well, it has been raining here, but I went out with the umbrella in the dark and came up with these two blooms of Pinza, for comparison to the photo submitted in the earlier inquiry to Nancy. The blooms are awfully wet, and the bloom may be a little older than the one Nancy included, and the lighting is certainly different. What do you think? m

    I would guess Ceylon but there were a lot of daffodils sold in the garden centers in the 80’s and 90’s with red rims. KK

    Could Pinza be the proper identification of this daffodil I purchased as Dottie's Dream at a big box store here in the southeast a couple of years ago?

    I think they are ‘Pinza’ – orange rim and petal shape are right. Brian
