Narcissus ‘Tripartite’ is in Division 11a. It blooms late spring with 2 – 3 flowers per stem. The flowers are 2½ inches wide and yellow. The petals are broad and blunt and may be slightly reflexed. The corona is split to two thirds of its length with the six segments opposite the petals. With maturity, the petals become paler in tone while the corona segments become darker. 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.
