Hi all

We had someone contact us for an identification. I’m afraid I don’t recognize it. This is how Andrea describes this Daffodil

“”Does someone at the ADS identify daffodils? I am curious about some that I have from my great-grandmother’s garden in Milton, Massachusetts. I attach several photos. My guess is that they date from the last quarter of the nineteenth century although they could have been planted as late as the first quarter of the 20th century. The ones in the photos have been transplanted to my garden in Washington, D.C.””

Any help is appreciated.

    Good news! Joe Hamm believes this is Amabilis “”””

    as stated in the Telephone message it is Amabilis (3 or 2).  There is picture of it that I had Tom take after I staged
    it to resemble the sketch engraving.Check with DafSeek..””””””
