I saw this jonquil in Jackson Mississippi back about 9 years or so. As I recall it was an historic or pre 1940. A lady wants to show these in Dallas in the morning and I cannot remember the name of them. It grows on stems 18″ tall for her and they have a definite jonquil scent. She thought it might be Bolton but in Daffseek Kirby shows a different one. This one is always or has always only had a single bloom for this lady. Sorry about the pitiful photos. Thanks Keith Kridler

    Could it be Galway? I’ve never grown it it ADS has an old picture of Galway. I’ll pass it along in a separate email.

    Galway is a 2, and a fairly big 2, and really doesn’t look like this, which looks like a very gold jonquil. I used to grow Galway a lot. Loyce
