Years ago Steve Vinisky sent me some species poet seed. I have one surviving specimen and it is always the very last daffodil to flower here. The first flower has now opened so it really is the end of the end.

Another last poet is in flower. It is Como x Sea Green.

It opens 9W-OWR, perhaps 9W-OOR and, in sunlight, matures 9W-YWR. I would guess that these color codes do not appear in daffseek because registrations are based on picked and shaded flowers.

Some jonquilla hybrids are still flowering. The first is Dreamboat (Evans) x jonquilla, the second Limequilla x jonquilla (tetraploid).

Some apodanthi come very late.

And some last main division flowers from Dreamboat and Lark/Citronita.
