Take a look at the daffodil image at the link below!  Yes, I know this catalog pushes their colors to extremes. I’m guessing this might be what Dutch Grown sold as one of 5 viridiflorus seedlings.  We called this one Leenen NVC1 and later changed it to Lima NVC1 on clarification of where it came from. The photo from the original packaging from Dutch Grown in inserted below the link for comparison.

    They offer a second viridflorus seedling, this one called “Emerald Kiss,” which looks like what we called Lima NVC4.

    Again the colors are pushed in the catalog, but each cultivar being listed 5 for $29.99 is not terribly bad if you missed these viridiflorus seedlings when they were offered by Dutch Gardens in 2015. Being at home and spending lots of time in the garden, perhaps I’m making a few too many online plant orders (not that this present situation started that habit!). Yes, I ordered 5 of each to be delivered in the fall.  ;->
