SNR 9W-G naturally-occurring hybrid

Just a glimpse of the fun things we find during our annual Shaw Nature Reserve daffodil digs.  Like, really fun things.  Fun things that seem relatively consistent from year to year.  Fun things that make  some people (and other daffodils) GREEN with envy!

This naturally-occurring poeticus hybrid was collected three years ago amongst a vast seedling swath of green-eyed white and yellow-rimmed poets, and is now being grown by a member in the Greater Saint Louis Daffodil Society.  Not too bad (if not a little dirty). 

Please consider joining us next spring at the Shaw Nature Reserve in Gray Summit, Missouri, where you too can explore a world of wonder in the fields of naturalized, natural hybrid poets… from green eyes to green coronas, there is much to discover!  Next year’s dig date will be posted on the Greater Saint Louis Daffodil Society’s 2015 calendar of events.

Enjoy your day,

    And on May 5 after 6 days open, this flower is still green and has not turned yellow, but it is in decline. The flower probably opened Apr 29. And it does have rain splashed dirt on the petals. It is about 15 inches tall.

    That’s good news, Peter!  Perhaps valuable for breeding green.
