This one is a mystery.
After we had some earthworks done a few years ago this daffodil came up - presumably from well over 30cm down!
We did have daffs in the area before the earth-moving so presumed it was one we had missed when re-locating the dormant bulbs.
However I have no recollection of ever having had a "standard height" jonquil!
For the past 2 years it has produced 2-3 florets per stem and this year there are 2 flower stems, so it's actually multiplying.
Anyone have any idea what it might be?

1) Here's another look at the rather tall multi-headed yellow daff which I think is some sort of jonquil or has that in its breeding.
2 & 3) Narcissus 'Solveig's Song' originally raised by Rannweig Wallis and distributed in Australia by Marcus Harvey (though this came from a donor at our plant swap)

Hi Paul,
some nice seedlings there!

Here's a "standard" Div 3 daff called 'Calleen' which was raised in Australia in 1945. It's described as 3-W-Y but I'm not sure why it isn't 3 W-YR
cheers
