Daffodils, or narcissus as they are also called, come in all kind of different shapes, colors and sizes. I was aware of this, but only when I set out to identify the daffodils surrounding the vegetable patch and in my apartment garden, I learned about differences like one or more flowers per stem, ratio of flower to cupsize, and subtleties like a nodding flower stem with slightly or accentuated reflexed petals.
