Narcissus ‘Mary Copeland’ is in Division 4. It blooms in mid to late spring with 4 inch double flowers that are sweetly scented. The petals are white with a touch of yellow at the base and a small point at the tip. The petals are arranged in multiple whorls. The orange corona segments are very short and orange, blending into scarlet orange at the rim. Some of the corona segments are clustered at the center while other 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.
