Though completely unexpected, ‘British Gamble’ daffodil has easily become one of my top five daffodils that I grew this year. Though I did my best to take some good photos, I fear that strong rain made the process very difficult. I can’t let a little bit of bad timing distract from the beauty of this variety.
As you can see from the photo above, ‘British Gamble’ daffodils open with yellow throats with soft pink edges. The blooms fade over time. The yellow disappears and the pink color becomes just a bit lighter.
I think the most distinctive attribute of ‘British Gamble’ daffodil is the sheer size of the plant’s flower. These things are seriously huge – the biggest daffodil flower that I’ve ever seen. Though I didn’t take a photo, each bloom could easily cover the entire palm of my hand!
