Daffodil to be renamed after Welsh pop star

Pint-sized pop sensation Duffy has been honoured by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).

The Welsh songstress has joined an exclusive list of people, which includes Princess Diana, Katherine Jenkins and Maria Callas, to have had flowers renamed in their honour.

Choosing the national flower of her home country, Duffy is now responsible for the renaming of a variety of the daffodil to the Duffydil.

"The Duffydil! Brilliant! Maybe now I can forgive myself for stealing them from peoples gardens," exclaimed the bubbly singer after she was given the honour.

RHS show director Stephen Bennett said he hoped that the Grammy Award-winner would be able to attend the societys Welsh show to launch the newly-named variety.

Duffy has had hits that include Mercy and Warwick Avenue since signing for A&M Records in 2007.

The RHS Show Cardiff takes place from April 17th until April 19th and is the first major show in the societys calendar.
