In 1974 I was a student at the University of California at Irvine, 
majoring in Biological Sciences. Fall quarter I took Biology 101A, 
Evolutionary Biology. The instructor was Professor Harold Koopowitz.

He mentioned one day bulbous plants, and specifically the daffodil King 
Alfred. To the best of my recollection (which means all errors are mine, 
not those of Dr. Koopowitz) he stated, "King Alfred was introduced in 
1898. It was surpassed in 1899."
