Description

Narcissus ‘By George’ is in Division 2. It blooms in mid to late spring with pale yellow petals and a large yellow corona. The corona has a white band at the rim and a band of pink just below the white. 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.
