Description

Narcissus ‘Salome’ is in Division 2. It blooms in late spring with broad white petals and a funnel-shaped corona, which opens yellow. As the flower matures, the base of the corona becomes orange-y pink, while the rim is a brilliant yellow and lightly frilled. 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.
