(Brodie, I., of Brodie; 1922)
Blending the creamy, wide-awake, shallow, pleated cup of ‘Mitylene’ (surely a progenitor of ‘Ice Follies’?), with the rich tints of ‘Fortune’’s orange corona, led E.A. Bowles (The Handbook of Narcissus, 1934) to describe ‘Coverack Perfection’ as having “…a flat wide crown of most unusual form and colour, being edged with a wide band of pale orange with a pink salmon-coloured sheen in it that is wonderfully attractive”. In R.F. Calvert’s catalogue of 1936, the corona is portrayed as a “…large shallow saucer crown, edged and flushed with pale salmon gold”. The outer milk-white perianth segments are so broad as to be round, or nearly so; the inner ones, ovate. A long-lasting flower of sturdy substance.
