Narcissus ‘Monal’ is in Division 2. It stands 16 – 18 inches tall and blooms very early in the season with 4 inch flowers. The petals are broad and golden yellow. The corona is a deep orangey red and funnel shaped with a straight mouth. 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.
