Daffodil Information

Note: Coloration in photographs and descriptions of flowers are as they bloom here. Many of the pinks may open yellow or greenish and the intensity of pink coloration develops with maturity. Many of the red cups will develop their brightness with maturity as well. As in any flower, color is influenced by climatic and soil conditions.

Following are two definitions of terms:

Corona: The cup, or trumpet-shaped or disc-like outgrowth, arising from the inner surface of the perianth at the base of the segments.

Perianth: The six floral leaves, comprised of three sepals and three petals.

Daffodil Classification

Daffodils are classified into 13 different divisions. The division and the color codes are used to describe the flower.

Y=yellow; W=white or whitish; R=red; O=orange; P=pink; G=green.

Division 1 = trumpet; Division 2 = large cup; Division 3 = small cup; Division 4 = double;
Division 5 to 9 = various species hybrids; Division 11 = split corona;

Division 12 = miscellaneous; Division 13 = species (natural forms which grow in the wild)

Example: Pacific Rim 2Y-YYR

Division 2 means large cup; Y means yellow perianth and YYR means yellow cup with red rim.
