The name 'POPS' stands for “Phillips Open Pollinated Seedling”. Phil Phillips of New Zealand gave a cup of seeds to Bill Bender of the U.S.. Bill planted the seeds and after years of evaluation, found this flower was notable and worthy of registration. So Bill named this daffodil after Philips and its parentage.
