@richard.spicer.7906 I only find a handful of these in the garden amongst the sea of daffodils so I’ve lifted them and potted them and will now feed them as instructed hoping to keep them separate from the others and easier to look after.

The American Daffodil Society has a super database that you can search for details on thousands of cultivars. It will also tell you which classification it is under - it will tell you the year (or approximation) of registration for all but if it’s old enough (usually pre 1945 I think) then it is also in the class of ADS Historics, so I take that as general to mean heritage 😊

Take a peek at www.daffseek.org - sorry, this is the right website

It will also tell you if a named cultivar is a synonym or correct name, which I’ve found quite useful on a few of mine.

I’m in the process of sorting out the border daffs @richard.spicer.7906 because I think they’ve been let loose for too long. If my insane actions pay off, in the next few years I hope to identify most / all of them. This website might be key. Thank you. (Whether I actually go through with it or not I don’t know, I have so much to do in the garden and I want to know everything RIGHT NOW!!! Am I greedy, mad or just your typical plant lover?) You don’t have to answer. Lol.

🤔😂🤓 - you are like me, I can’t stand not knowing what something is called, I always need a Name!! Well I hope that weblink does help. Quite a few photos on there too but you will notice small variations. Sometimes just different location/growing conditions is enough to make something slightly different. Good luck in your quest - I’m sure it will pay off, and feel free to tag me in any, I might surprise myself and recognise some. Although there are literally thousands of them out there 😳

My identification could be wrong but I think this is a little bit of cheerfulness
