A Gorgeous Mystery Daffodil – What Could It Be?

In gardening, it seems like there’s always a surprise. Sometimes, I order certain varieties of plant and they turn out to be something completely different. The same seems to have happened last fall when I ordered and planted what I thought was the ‘Wave’ daffodil.

‘Wave’ daffodils are supposed to have white outer petals, and a very full yellow and white double cup. As you can see, the one that grew in their place look much different than I had anticipated.

While the inner cup is still very full, and beautiful, there definitely isn’t any white coloring to be found. Rather, the flower is predominantly shades of pale and buttery yellow.

Though I am always a tiny bit annoyed when things that I plant have been mislabeled, I’d definitely consider this a pleasant surprise. After all, this variety is definitely unique to any of the other daffodil types that I currently grow.

What do you think? Could you help me to identify this mystery daffodil? I’d love to hear all about your experiences down in the comment section below. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by the blog. I hope that you’re having a great day!

  1. This looks a lot like the ‘Milena’ daffodil! I had planted some of them this past fall. I also received mislabeled bulbs this year – so frustrating and disappointing to have invested money and time in planting them, only for them to not be the correct variety! I would ask the bulb vendor for a refund or replacement of the daffodils (and keep the mislabeled ones as an unexpected addition to your beautiful collection).
