I am hoping you can help me find more information on ‘Explorer’ 1 Y-Y, and ‘Florissant’ 2 W-YYW.  I am trying to put names to faces in an old garden on Cape Cod and have receipts for the purchase of these cultivars but no photos of them.  Can anyone provide more info or images beyond what’s on daffseek?

    Hi Tim,

    I was hoping that our new DaffLibrary might have some words of wisdom for you, but all I found were listings in several catalogs for ‘Explorer’, and an article in The Daffodil Journal that ‘Florissant’ was still being grown in Russian gardens.  No photos.  It’s easy to search:  just fill in the search box on the DaffLibrary home page.  We’ll be adding more items, so maybe there’s a catalog out there that has photos.

    Sorry, I had to get in a blatant plug for the new DaffLibrary.  🙂
