Comments

Fl. golden yellow; perianth segments broadly ovate, blunt, inflexed, sometimes a little reflexed towards apex, overlapping half; the inner segments narrower, more strongly inflexed, twisted; corona cylindrical, angled, mouth ribbed, widely expanded, with rim deeply crenate.

From Rev. Joseph Jacob’s book ‘Daffodils’ circa 1910: “Lord Roberts, with its bold, massive trumpet and broad, overlapping perianth is generally to be seen in the best exhibition stands of twelve yellow Magni-coronati flowers, and it has received awards from the RHS and from other daffodil societies.” (Jacob’s book was part of the ‘Present Day’ Gardening series)
