Trumpet Narcissus, Trumpet Daffodil, Narcissus ‘King Alfred’
The Daffodil is always one of the first flowers to show its face in Spring ~ usually we see then in mid to late February in North Texas.
The King Alfred Trumpet daffodil was the first trumpet daffodil to be widely sold commercially. It was developed in the late 19th century by John Kendall,an English attorney and hobbyist plant breeder.
Kendall died in 1890 so it is believed that the King Alfred daffodil dates to around that time. He never saw the first bloom of the flower that was named for Alfred The Great,the medieval English king. The first official record of King Alfred was in 1899 when it was registered with the Royal Horticultural Society.
