Our dream flower!


My friends and I have fallen hard for this beautiful Daffodil and want to get our hands on it!  It has been suggested that the flower has been dyed!  We want to know for sure?  If any one has any suggestions we would love some help.

thanks

Hawke writes: Daffodil (or narcissus) come in many shapes and sizes, but are almost all somewhere between white and yellow, or a mixture of those colours. this is a fake, but can't tell if dyed or put in coloured water, looks gorgeous though :) Posted: 2:49 am on May 17th
goodearth writes: You didn't say whether these were cut flowers, or growing in soil, however, this makes me think of a trick we did when we were children: We put food coloring in the water in the vase in which you put cut daffodils. Over a day or so, they take up the water - and food coloring - and voila! blue or purple or red daffodils! Posted: 3:40 pm on April 4th
PeonyFan writes: Beautiful but I think it's dyed (given the pattern of dispersion of the blue coloring). But, ask the experts at the American Daffodil Society, because I might be wrong. Here is the contact.
