Narcissus ‘Bella Estrella’ is in Division 11a. It stands 16 - 18 inches high and blooms in mid spring with 1 -3 flowers per stem. The flowers are 3 inches across with white petals that have a small point at the tip. The corona is a bright greenish yellow and split to the base, forming 2 whorls which overlay the petals. 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.
