Please identify this Daff

Dear Jackie,
Well, it sort of looks like ‘Topkapi’, but I should warn you of the astounding height, breadth, and depth of my ignorance. We should both be happy that someone else is on the same quest. I have a dozen or so Y-Os of whose identity I have no idea. But I have two older ones that I do know– ‘Highfire’ and ‘Serola’– and that’s thanks to their labels not getting lost, not my ability to remember their distinctive traits. And the labels are still in place for my more recent accessions from Phyllis and CODS, which include some Y-Os. There are a very few Daffodils that I can identify on sight.
Best,
Don

    Dear Jackie,
    ‘Topkapi’ is the most likely, but other possibilities are ‘Centrefold’ and ‘Glen Alladale’.
