Sara van Beck in Atlanta might have some of the kinds of information being  
requested. She has made the study of daffodils in the South a significant 
hobby.  In addition, Russell Studebaker, a garden writer in Oklahoma, has done some 
 research on the use of daffodils by Cherokee people in cemeteries.
I can furnish an email address for Sara if anyone wants to contact me  
privately. I might be able to find some contact information for Russell as well.  
This pertains only to daffodils in the South.
