In Bloom: ‘Mary Gay Lirette’ Daffodil

I absolutely love finding new-to-me varieties of daffodil. ‘Mary Gay Lirette’ daffodil is certainly no exception to this.

There are so many gorgeous varieties of salmon-peach daffodil available to home gardeners. While I already have several cultivars, I was drawn to this one because of its soft color.

When the blooms first begin to open, they are very much an orange-yellow color. Over the span of a few days, each flower fades to a gorgeous pastel shade. So pretty!

I believe that ‘Mary Gay Lirette’ daffodil is technically a split-corona. I just love how each of the split petals has that full, ruffled appearance.
