Narcissus ‘Sherborne’ is in Division 4. It blooms in mid spring with 4 inch wide double flowers. The petals are a bright greenish yellow and the corona segments are a strong orange yellow. The petals are arranged in multiple whorls with the shorter corona segments interspersed among the whorls of 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.
