I've always loved the traditional, plain, old, yellow daffodils, the ones you see growing at the road side or growing en masse in a field and blowing in the breeze. Therefore, it was with trepidation that I bought the variety Professor Einstein last autumn. Would it live up to my expectations from a daffodil?
The answer is a resounding no. Some of them have come up blind, that is with foliage but no flower, but the ones which have flowered just don't cut the mustard. I thought it would be a nice change to have something different to the usual yellow this year, but they don't do it for me. Professor Einstein has white petals and a striking, flattish, orange cup, nice enough but not what I want in a daffodil.
I'm pleased that I have some of my beloved yellow daffodils planted in the garden or else I'd be really disappointed this year. How about you, do you have a favourite variety of daffodil?
