Narcissus ‘Obdam’ is in Division 4. It stands 16 – 18 inches tall and blooms in mid to late spring with double flowers. The petals are white, while the corona segments open yellow and mature to white. The multiple petals and corona segments give this double flower the look of a peony. The bulbs are toxic and will not be eaten by deer or rabbits. It is hardy in zones 4 – 8. 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.
