    I had some daffodills in one bed that were bright orange inside with some yellow outer petals. There might be yellow lupines, but I think they are rare to find.

    Sorry for the late response.
    Ain't sure 'bout the name or anything, but bought around 15(WalMart and Home Depot) last fall and they all survived the winter here(7a). Then decided to replant 12 in pots and somewhat forgot to water them this summer.
