Comments

Fl. 89 mm wide, facing down; perianth segments broadly ovate, creamy white, spreading, with broad midrib showing, overlapping half; the inner segments a little inflexed; corona opening very pale primrose, becoming faintly pink and then snowy white, cylindrical, mouth somewhat expanded and loosely frilled, with rim crenate.

This daffodil was classified as a Division 1 until the year 1965.

According to The American Horticultural Society’s 1937 issue of the The American Daffodil Year Book, Guy L. Wilson’s article “Some Modern Daffodils for Garden Decoration” states: “Eskimo is an ideal garden plant: not a very large flower, but very neat and well formed, and of firm lasting texture. On the first opening the trumpet is pale lemon, but in sunny weather the flower soon bleaches to purest white; it is very free of bloom and increase; sturdy in habit, carrying its flowers above the foliage, and seems to possess a thoroughly reliable and vigorous constitution, making good hard clean bulbs; it was highly commended at the Wisley Trials, and has done exceptionally well in New Zealand.”
