Narcissus ‘Beryl’ is in Division 6. This a dwarf narcissus that blooms in mid spring. The flowers are 3 inches wide and face slightly downward. The petals open bright yellow and become white as they mature. The petals are reflexed with a small point at the tip of each petal. The yellow corona is cup shaped with a band of orange at the mouth. 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.
