Comments

Fl. 95 mm wide; perianth segments very broadly ovate, blunt or rounded at apex, fairly prominently mucronate, brilliant greenish yellow, spreading, a little concave, overlapping half; the inner segments more narrowly ovate, shouldered at base and sometimes with a ‘thumb’ at the margin, slightly inflexed, somewhat creased; corona bowl-shaped, lightly ribbed, yellow-orange, with a paler tone at base, mouth expanded and loosely frilled, rim crenate.

According to The American Horticultural Society’s 1937 issue of the The American Daffodil Year Book, B. Y. Morrison’s article “Daffodil Novelty Trials, 1936” states: “Carbineer belongs to the group of newer hybrids that have strong, stiff stems with well poised flowers and substance. Its color is good, a clear yellow with a frill of deep orange.”
