Narcissus ‘Binkie’ is in Division 2. It blooms in mid to late season with 4 inch flowers. The petals are a light greenish yellow and have a small point on the tip. The large corona is funnel shaped and very pale yellow, becoming white as it ages. There is a band of bright greenish yellow 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.
