Narcissus ‘Avalanche’ is in Division 8. It stands 16 to 18 inches tall and blooms in early to mid season with 10 or more strongly scented flowers on each stem. The petals are white and slightly reflexed with a small point at the tip of each petal. The corona is yellow and bowl shaped. The bulbs are toxic and will not be eaten by deer or rabbits. The name Avalanche is because it was supposedly found growing on a cliff. 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.
