Daffodil

Narcissus sp.

[narcissus_sp]

Jefferson noted "Narcissus" blooming on April 6, 1766, and again on March 17, 1782 . Narcissus, which includes the Daffodil and its smaller relative, the Jonquil, is one of the most popular garden flowers. Its early arrival and its bright trumpet and crown make it an apt herald of spring.
