I would appreciate your help identifying one of Filoli’s daffodils shown blooming below in the bulb slope and in the picnic grounds on (2/28/2009). I believe this is Insulinde 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 (

    This looks a lot like Twink but it would be not have been planted in 1918. It was registered in 1925. Keith Kridler
