By jmorth on Mar 27, 2015 11:55 AM, concerning plant: Trumpet Daffodil (Narcissus 'Pink o' Dawn')

The hybridizer, Crawford Radcliff, an Australian from Tasmania, created two cultivars of the same name in the same year (1931) from the same seed parent (Mrs. W. Moodie) but different pollen parents (this entry's pollen parent was Lemon Star, the other was Lord Kitchener).

Radcliff has created same-named daffodils on more than one occasion (ex.- LaGana, and I recall others). Why? Go figure...

This particular cultivar has an illustrious history in the world of daffodil breeding. It is seed fertile and was used in this capacity 22 times. It is also pollen fertile and was used 30 times in that role. Resultant cultivars number 42 named daffodils. The rest were numbered seedlings. The creators of the named offspring were all from Australia and New Zealand, except for four from Northern Ireland. This happened mostly in the middle part of the last century.
