Dear Mary (and Loyce):
It seems doubtful to me that it would be Pink Charm.  Pink Charm is an intermediate with tremendous precision of form.  Neither the perianth nor the corona resemble the bloom shown.  Further, the bulb I would be surprised to learn that the bulb was in general commerce, but believe it is sold only by specialty bulb producers at a price appropriate to a sought-after show cultivar.  It seems more probable to me that Walmart is getting a mass-grown and mass-distributed holland cultivar.

    But we had (too) many pink div 2 daffs and Pink Charm is one of the bigger lots here in Holland that are sold in the mass for prizes you can pot them easily.
