Miniature daffodils

Special Classes are lists of daffodils that horticultural societies use for grouping daffodils with some similar size characteristics like intermediate or miniature daffodils. Some lists are used as guidelines and others are considered as approved cultivars and species for exhibiting.

Miniature daffodils are named, numbered or species daffodils which appear graceful, with all its parts proportionately small. A single miniature daffodil bloom is a flower less than 50 mm (1.97”) in natural spread. For multi-floreted miniature daffodils, the guideline measurement for the floral mass is 72 mm (2.83”) in natural spread.

The American Daffodil Society, the New Zealand Daffodil Society, and the Daffodil Society of Great Britain maintain lists of miniature daffodils which may be viewed on our Special Classes Query page at

The Daffodil Society of Great Britain includes species as well as miniature cultivars on their miniature daffodil list.
