Narcissus ‘Blushing Lady’ is a late season bloomer in the Jonquil section of Narcissus with multiple flowers per stem and a delightful fragrance. The flowers open light yellow and over time the cups gradually age to a light pink blush. This species will thrive in most of the soils found in the Chicago area in full sun or under the canopy of deciduous trees. In addition to Chicago winters, it is also very tolerant of the hot humid summers of the Deep South that cause many daffodils down there to rot. Free of most insect and diseases, rabbits and deer avoid it because of chemicals within the plant sap. Other groups of chemicals within the sap can cause contact dermatitis in sensitive individuals. Great for planting near a sidewalk, door or window where the fragrance can be appreciated.
