Wiki

Narcissus (pronounced /nɑrˈsɪsəs/)[1] is the botanic name for a genus of mainly hardy, mostly spring-flowering, bulbs in the Amaryllis family native to Europe, North Africa, and Asia. There are also several Narcissus species that bloom in the autumn. Though Hortus Third [2] cites 26 wild species, Daffodils for North American Gardens[3] cites between 50 and 100 including species variants and wild hybrids. Through taxonomic and genetic research, it is speculated that over time this number will probably continue to be refined.[4] Daffodil is a common English name, sometimes used now for all varieties, and is the chief common name of horticultural prevalence used by the American Daffodil Society.[5] The range of forms in cultivation has been heavily modified and extended, with new variations available from specialists almost every year.

Love these flowers!!! They are very hardy. I literally have hundreds here on the property in Virginia. They are breaking ground through the snow each year. I love that!!!
