Speaking of I. reticulata, I recieved some, about 110 bulbs from Park
seed company as a gift for purchasing daffodils (a lot). Anyway as the
reticulata's are now blooming I was surprised to see a number of
different clones emerging. I kind of thought that all would be the same
but I now have 3 distinct types. The majority are a dark wine purple
self with a white signal (no yellow or orange signal at all). another
is a bicolor with lavender standards and medium purple falls with a
white signal dissected with a orange line. The third is a medium
blue-violet self, white signal with an orange line.
Does anyone know varietal names within this species? I've heard of
"Cantab" and a few others, but have no idea what i have. I took good
close up pictures(not developed yet) and can send to anyone who may be
able to identify.
