Our only entry in the catalog that comes from Division 8, as precious few of the true tazetta daffodils (think paperwhite types) are at all hardy for me. The good news is that breeders in the early 1900’s discovered that if crossed with the poeticus, the resulting “poetaz” possessed increased hardiness. Unfortunately this genetic improvement had its price--a drastic reduction in the number of flowers produced per stem on the hybrids. Highfield Beauty rarely has more than three, but all usually have show quality form. The petals are a sandy pale amber color; the wide, shallow cup is a much livelier yellow and has a thin orange rim. Around since 1964, H. R. Mott from Australia produced this flower.
