(Lubbe & Zn, G., pre-1919)
An imposing Poet: the flowers large at maturity, borne on tall stems above glaucous, greyish green, bent-over, strap-like foliage. On opening, the flower, of moderate proportions, has a closely pleated, lobed, shallow-bowl corona of rich fiery orange; the eye zone a dull orange-yellow with a greenish cast, staining the base of the perianth segments tarnished mimosa-yellow. The maturing flowers grow more than in most Narcissus, the perianth segments becoming whiter and more spreading; the corona expanding to a vaguely rounded hexagon in outline; the fiery orange retreating to the rim and becoming more coral, as the rest of the corona matures to Dresden yellow. It has been a popular cut-flower variety due to its reliability and abundant flowers.
