Narcissus ‘Barrett Browning’ is in Division 3. It has white petals which have a touch of bright yellow at the base. The inner segments of petals are slightly inflexed. The corona is orange and bowl shaped with a mouth that is flared out and frilled at the rim. The 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.
