Last attempt at sending this seemed to have stripped the contents 
out.  Never had it happen before, so wondering why it happened this 
time?  Weird!!

Anyway, this was the message I attempted sending last time.....

Doing a quick check on google, it is mentioned quite 
well.  Apparently it is an old "very double" variety of 
pseudonarcissus called 'Telemonius Plenus' (they quote it that way as 
the full name).

A couple of references that mention it.....

Describing it as.... Div IV - "N. 'Wilmot's Double Daffodil' and 
'Guernsey Cubbage Daffodil'. An variety from pre-1620! Yellow. Ht. 16 inches."

and also ...


A couple seem to refer to it as a synonym for 'Van Sion'.  Couldn't 
find a picture of it, but didn't look particularly hard.  Sounds nice though.

I hope this is a help.
