None of the daffodils in this division is particularly showy in terms of colour, form, or fragrance, and none of them looks very much like a traditional daffodil. You have be adventurous, and willing to try something different to plant a Bulbocodium Hybrid.
In addition, they are not that easy to find. "Golden Bells" and "Kenellis" are the only varieties that show up at all regularly in catalogues. I suggest that you start your search with some on-line catalogues like McClure & Zimmerman, or Brent and Becky's Bulbs.
