Comments

Fls 2-3 per stem, rounded, 65-70 mm wide; perianth segments very broadly ovate, almost roundish, blunt or truncate, prominently mucronate, white, touched orange-yellow at base, spreading or slightly inflexed, concave, with margins incurling, overlapping 1/3; inner segments more narrowly ovate, not noticeably mucronate, often twisted, with margins more strongly incurled; corona shallow bowl-shaped, ribbed, deep orange, with a darker tone at rim.

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: “Glorious, whose flowers are nearly as large as those of Poets Narcissus, and are carried in twos and threes on the stem, has white perianth an deep orange scarlet cup. In good seasons it has been strikingly attractive here, but like Scarlet Gem it is not at its best when sharp night frosts are prevalent. It is also richly scented and very free flowering.”
