Description

Narcissus ‘Mrs.R.O.Backhouse’ is in Division 2. It blooms in mid to late spring with 3¾ inch flowers. The petals are white with a small point at the tip. The corona is cylindrical and pale apricot pink with a slightly expanded and frilled 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.
