According to classical mythology, a young man by the name of Narcissus, was so enamored with himself that he continuously stared at his reflection in a pool of water until he eventually turned into his namesake flower.

 

The genus Narcissus encompasses dozens of species, hybrids, varieties and forms. Jonquils, Daffodils, Paperwhites are the most popular varieties of Narcissus.

  • Jonquils - They have dark green, round, rush-like leaves and clusters of small, fragrant, early, yellow blossoms.
  • Daffodils - Without a doubt, modern large flowered daffodils are the most popular type of Narcissus planted today.
  • Paper whites - They are the early blooming Narcissus variety with white, powerfully fragrant, clustered flowers.
