In both the innovative bulb exchange at Indianapolis and in our sale at the Chicago Botanic Garden which included a number of bulbs dug at Oakwood Daffodils was a variety with a curious name:  Ogeesan Wally 2 W-O (1970) . It is from Lindsay Dettman in Australia. The 3 photos in Daffseek are all from Ken Fink. It’s pretty.

Anyone, probably Down Under, know the origin of this name? Some ADS heavies at Indy did not.

    I posed this question to my non daffodil australian friends. Their answer was that ogeesan (ojisan) is japanese for ‘Uncle’.
