Description

Narcissus ‘Manon Lescaut’ is in Division 2. It blooms in mid season with 4½ flowers. The petals are white and the broad, shallow corona is a light yellow with a narrow band of orange at the rim. 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.
