Description

Narcissus ‘Aflame’ is in Division 3. It stands more than 27 inches high and blooms in early to mid spring. It has broad white overlapping petals and a bright orange bowl shaped corona with a touch of gold at its base. The mouth of the corona is flared and frilled. Narcissus bulbs are toxic and will not be eaten by deer or rabbits. The name Narcissus comes from the Greek word for narcotic and is tied to the myth of a young man known as Narcissus who fell in love with his own reflection. When he drowned in the pool where he had been admiring himself, Narcissus flowers grew up around the pool.
