Narcissus ‘Bridal Crown’ is in Division 4. It blooms in mid spring with small 1 ½ inch flowers which have a strong fragrance. The flowers are doubles and there are multiple flowers on each stem. The petals are white and occur in multiple whorls. The corona segments are very short and yellow. Some of the corona segments are interspersed among 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.
