Ron Scamp has named his new variety Gallipoli Dawn in honour of those who fought in the Dardanelles Campaign in 1915. He hopes the flower will raise much-needed funds for the organisation set up to remember those killed and wounded in the bitter fighting in what is modern-day Turkey.
Mr Scamp, who grows more than 3000 varieties of daffodil - the largest collection in the world - in Falmouth, Cornwall, said: "When the Gallipoli Association approached me and asked me if I had a variety that could be named for the centenary commemoration, I was deeply honoured."
Gallipoli Dawn will be on sale soon at three for £12. The price reflects the scarcity of the variety - Mr Scamp expects to have no more than 200 bulbs for sale this year.
