I went along to the Norfolk & Norwich Horticultural Society Show on Sunday which incorporates the East of England Daffodil Championship and Plant Fair. Very different daffodils exhibited to the ones you see at AGS/SRGC shows and pictured here but interesting, and it was a very pleasant, friendly show with a range of nurseries attending that included Riverside Bulbs and Monksilver.

There must be someone in Norfolk breeding large-flowered daffodils and there were several with local names.
'Horsey Mere' is a massive flower;


'Hickling Broad'


'Yare Valley'

'Cameo Flush' is a nice warm colour and seemed a popular show flower.


'Beaulieu'


I did like the colour of 'Wild Honey' which is probably nicer 'in the flesh' than in my photo

And perhaps of most appeal to alpine enthusiasts, 'Elka'

It's always interesting to note the difference between the ideal exhibition flower and the ideal alpinists blooms. Daffodil shows are always fun to go to and see how passionate exhibitors are, and the huge variation in flower types even among exhibition cultivars.
