Narcissus ‘Canaliculatus’ is in Division 8. It is only 4 - 6 inches high and blooms in mid to late spring with multiple flowers on each stem. The petals are white and reflexed with a distinctive point at the tip. The yellow corona is cup shaped with a somewhat constricted mouth. The flowers have a pleasing fragrance. 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.
