Narcissus ‘Altun Ha’ is a yellow reverse bi-colour daffodil. In contrast to the cream petals / yellow cup combination we more often see in daffodils, the outer petals of N. ‘Altun Ha’ are yellow and the cup, creamy white, paling as the flower ages.
Shared as part of Cee’s Flower of the Day – her choice today is an iris bud.
I used a square crop of this picture back in 2015 in my post celebrating a behind-the-scenes tour of Brent and Becky’s Bulbs, one of my favourite visits to a specialist nursery. If you fancy seeing some more dreamy flowers, click on the link to take a look – the daffodils were at their peak when we were there.

Hmm. I’m a grouch. I prefer darker trumpets!
I love the ones with orange cups. I was tempted to share a double daffodil in today’s post, but gave you a reprieve.
Jolly decent of you! 😉
I love this. It looks like a confection that belongs atop petits fours.
Fondant fancy colours too!
What Shoreacres said — that is exactly right! Naturally I clicked on the link to Brent and Becky’s; I can’t even SAY “Daffodil Festival” without getting weak-kneed. I am reduced to sounds like oooooooh. An eyeful of daffodils is exactly what I needed this morning. Thank you!
It was a real treat to be able to visit when they flowers were at their peak.
Beautiful! Thanks for continuing to bring a spot of beauty to cheer our days!
My pleasure, Debie!
I like it! Nice change.
I think it works too.
These are different! How tall do they grow to?
They reach 14-16″ (35-40 cm)
OK, thanks. Bit tall for me.
Ooh such gorgeous flowers! Wish I had a whole yard of them!
I have a picture somewhere of them in a swathe and they look great.
They are really striking – and I’d love to grow them. I can imagine how surprised folk must be when they first come across a planting of them.
They are a surprise, but they have a rightness about them too. I ended up half-doubting they were reversed at some level, even though I knew they were.
I like the creamy white and yellow. Why shouldn’t the trumpets be white?
