Description

Narcissus ‘Carlton’ is in Division 2. It stands 18 to 20 inches high and blooms in mid spring. The petals are yellow with points at the tips. The large funnel-shaped corona is a deeper yellow with an expanded mouth. It is hardy in zones 3 to 8. 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.
