I remember reading some (to me) dense prose here in discussions of Pink Daffodils. It’s become clear to me that the ‘pink’ is actually a melon or apricot color, not the cotton candy pink you see in some catalogs.
But I am also aware that there are pretty specific temps and weather that optimize the pink, making it pink-est, while still not pink.
I have searched thru scientific journals via the internet, hoping to get >scientific instructions for obtaining this pink-ish color (these are all carotenoid pigments?), or at least to explain to someone who lives in the right place, at the right time, how best to obtain the pink-est >narcissus next spring.
