Narcissus: The December Beauty

This symbol of anything tranquil and sweet, consists of yellow and white flowers, also known as daffodils.

They are extremely popular in the Mediterranean, because they grow almost everywhere and carry with them a rather interesting mythological history. God Narcissus, obsessed with how attractive he was, was led to a pool by Nemesis where he couldn’t take his eyes off his own reflection and drowned. That is why daffodils are symbols of beauty and loving yourself – although not (anymore) in a conceited way.

These beautiful flowers, once they have finished flowering, daffodil_1_largewill start growing (better in the shade of deciduous trees). Once these trees leaf out, their foliage will have significantly grown. Daffodils will not long survive under evergreen trees and shrubs.

Their flowering season lasts anywhere from six weeks to six months, depending on where you live and the cultivars you grow.  After blooming, let the daffodil plant rebuild its bulb for the next year. The leaves stay green while this is happening. When the leaves begin to yellow, then you can cut the leaves off but not before.

Narcissi are mainly cultivated in Holland and UK and they originate from Western Europe.
