Winky DinkA Rose Ribbon winner in 2002. Bill has yet to give me the definitive information regarding this cultivar, but all the clues lead me to believe it is Pannill 89/33, from Highlite x Magician. The form and size is very much like Highlite's, with its double triangle perianth and more funnel shaped cup. Unlike Highlite though, the pink in the corona is right there at the start, with Magician, as usual, contributing great depth of color. What does take some time to develop in some years is the yellow perianth suggested by the color code Bill gave his seedling when initially showing it. In our cool Massachusetts spring of 2011, the petals were white for 10 or more days before taking on any pale lemon tones. The year before, the subtle yet beautiful color came within 5 days. Still not officially registered, but we will most likely keep the code as Bill first had it, 2Y-P.

Spring Break

I have loads of respect for this dependable Pannill “pink”. Its petals are as white as white can be. The lightly flared long cup first opens a very soft yellow, and for us does take a bit of time before the rosy tones develop. But with this flower you have time; its incredible waxy substance keeps it looking good for a long while whether cut or left to stand in the garden. A strong grower that produces heavy dense bulbs. Named in 1996.

JavelinWe get great pleasure when we read the Show results from across the country and see customers winning blue ribbons with flowers produced from the bulbs we have sent them. This older Bill Pannill introduction seems to be one that annually appears on those lists, most frequently as part of an award winning collection. A few of the reasons it continues as such a "go-to" variety is that Javelin throws its blooms early mid season making it reliably available at show time, plus it grows so well there is always an army of flowers to choose from. The yellow petals reflex slightly, accentuating the medium length, deep orange straight-sided cup. From 1970, the first year Bill officially started registering any of his daffodils.

Cameo Frills 3683A fairly large, rounded flower with alluring form. Its shorter but wide open funnel shaped "long-cup" allows the viewer to admire the very regular ribbing, its deep yellow heart, and the wide band of orange (about 1/3rd the corona's length; very much more than just a rim of color) at the neatly ruffled mouth. The broad, clear yellow petals seldom nick despite the frilly edged cup. This is a very dependable early mid season show flower and was registered by the Ramsays in 2001.
