Nelsonii Group, possibly ‘Minor’ or ‘Pulchellus’ (formerly listed as “late-flowering”)
(Leeds, E., pre-1877)
This Group, popular by the 1890s, commemorates the Revd J.G. Nelson, who cultivated 26 acres of glebe at Aldborough, Norfolk. Although the original, late-flowering “stove pipe” daffodils exhibit the cylindrical trumpet of N. bicolor and N. abscissus, some later hybrids have more expanded, campanulate coronas.
