Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen from vanveenbulbs.com. And in this series we're learning about how to identify spring blooming flower bulbs. We plant them in the fall, and put a name tag next to them, or we don't even bother to do that. And then when they bloom in the spring we have no idea what their name is. So let's introduce them. This one has got to be one of the most beautiful daffodils in the world, it's called Tahiti. So Tahiti is easy to recognize, it's a yellow with orange little fringes in it, just like someone just barely painted a little bit of orange inside. And it's a double daffodil, so it's got many layers that are just incredibly gorgeous. It's such a pretty, pretty daffodil, and my favorite part about the Tahiti is that it's orange. It's got orange in it, and in the spring you never see any oranges, and when you see them blooming, you see the orange they remind you that summer is on it's way. Lots of orange flowers in the summer, but very few in the spring. So Tahiti for me is one of those cheerful daffodils that just is a highlight of my yard. The only thing about the Tahiti daffodil is if you planted it in Tahiti it would come up once. But it would have to be dug up and put in the refrigerator to bloom twice, because it needs a cold temperature in the winter. So it's named Tahiti, although it probably wouldn't do that well there. Next we'll talk about another beautiful small rock garden tulip called the Cedemon Tarda.
