Description

Narcissus ‘Birma’ is in Division 3. It blooms in early to mid spring. The petals are yellow with a small white point on the tip. The corona is cup shaped and bright orange but may be a lighter orange at the base. 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.
