Narcissus ‘Altun Ha’

Daffodil with yellow petals and white cup (Narcissus 'Altun Ha')
Narcissus ‘Altun Ha’

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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

    1. 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.
