It looks like a mini daffodil, except each stem also has 1/2 of a flower on it also. Looks like someone sliced it right down the middle. Kind of smells like a lilac.
I hope someone out there can help me identify this flower. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I found these last year at an abandoned house. I will see what I can do about a pic in the next week or so...should be blooming by then.

This sounds like Tete-a-tete Daffodil
an early blooming mini daff that tends to have 2 flowers on each stem.

I don't quite understand the "1/2 flower" thing,
unless it's the result of some damage or
maybe even a genetic mutation. Duh

I with you Loz--I'd love to see a picture of this flower. I'm really curious to see what it looks like. Not sure I've ever seen anything like it frown

The described daff does sound like Tete A Tete. My bed of Tete a Tete usually has three flowers per stem. This variety is popular for forcing. Look for them around Easter and make sure to take in the delicate fragrance.

In MI these are early blooming which means late March. Will be interested to learn of their bloom date in Texas.

One half of a flower? A nasturtium does that, doesn't it?

I was wondering what kind of daffodils I had in the basket of bulbs that I got for Valentine's day and now I think they must be tete-a-tete daffodils. They have small flowers and a lot of the stems have 2 flowers on them and I thought that was odd. Good to know! thumbup
