Description

Narcissus ‘Smiling Sun’ is in Division 2. It blooms in mid spring with scented flowers that are 3½ inches wide. The petals are broad and white with a touch of greenish yellow at the base, while the corona is bright yellow and funnel shaped with a flared mouth. The petals are spreading and may be somewhat reflexed. 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.
