This is in full bloom here right now...4/25/2015. I can't say that it has the greatest scent, but the bees don't seem to care as it is covered with them.

By jmorth on Apr 24, 2015 12:14 AM, concerning plant: Small Cupped Daffodil (Narcissus 'Chungking')

Chungking is a classic small-flowered daffodil from Northern Ireland (registered 1943) of yellow petals and an orange cup. Very colorful. It was awarded the First Class Certificate in 1950 and the Award of Merit in 1948 (both from RHS). The hybridizer was Guy L. Wilson, who crossed Market Merry and Clackrattle to produce Chungking. Said cultivar is both seed and pollen fertile. 34 cultivars can call Chungking dad and 20 others owe their existence to its pollen, totaling 54 named cultivars. There are an additional 17 registered seedling crosses, making a total of 71 official offspring.
