Mount Hood Narcissus
Mount Hood daffodil has been around since the 1930s and continues to be one of the most popular white varieties today. The pearl white 4” flowers shine like moonlight in the spring garden. At first, the trumpet opens to a very light pastel yellow, then quickly turns into a shining white.
