Detailed overview:
The Daffodil Site
Title: The Daffodil Site
Creator: Crawley, Mick
Abstract: The aim of this site is to help you to name daffodil cultivars. Churchyards, municipal plantings and parkland are the best places to search for daffodils, and the best time to look for them is between January and April. Most of the plants you find outside gardens will have been planted intentionally or will have grown from fly-tipped waste; few will have come from seed. You need to understand from the outset that many of the plants you find cannot be named with certainty: most cultivars are just too ill-defined to make this possible. Some, like 'Tete-a-Tete', you can easily learn to name, and you will always be able to say that your specimen was "close to such-and-such a cultivar". To make the process of identification as simple as possible, the site is divided into three sections. The first, found by following the how to ID daffodils link, describes the way that the pictorial key is supposed to work. The main part of the site is the guide, which takes you through the basic steps needed to identify your specimen, based mainly on the colours of the 6 petals (3 outer and 3 inner perianth segments) and the trumpet (corona). The last section is a pictorial glossary showing some of the most important technical features used in distinguishing between cultivars. [Information of the supplier]
