I bought a large number of clearance daffodils from local WalMart stores late last fall that were labeled ‘Jetfire’ and ‘Thalia’. I gave some bags away, planted some, and kept some refrigerated and a few weeks ago potted them up. They have been blooming and the ‘Jetfire’ is definitely not ‘Jetfire’. I’m attaching a couple of photos to see if anyone can ID it since apparently none of the stock is what they had it labeled as. It is a sweetly fragrant 7 Y-Y. The ‘Thalia’ is blooming now and looks true to name.

Thanks for any possible names for the bulb WalMart had labeled as ‘Jetfire’ as I have shared these bulbs as well as several pots of them in bloom now with others. I’m sure we’d love to know their real name!

    Could it be ‘Sweetness’ 7 Y-Y?

    My guess would also be Sweetness.
    Jetfire is a popular variety and hard to purchase in Holland.
    Sweetness on the other end is grown in vast quantities and reasonable low in price.

    It doesn’t look like the large patch of ‘Sweetness’ I have out back. The petal overlap is not as good and the petals are more pointed. This one also seems not quite as bright a yellow as ‘Sweetness’. Any more ideas? Thanks!

    I just looked through all the 7 Y-Y’s on Daffsee and think it could be ‘Marie Curie Diamond’. It looks a lot like the photos on Daffseek here: https://daffseek.org/detail-page/?cultivar=Marie%20Curie%20Diamond&lastpage=5&which=hist1
