Narcissus elegans

Phylum: Magnoliophyta - Class: Equisetopsida - Order: Asparagales - Family: Amaryllidaceae


This lovely wildflower grows on slopes, in rocky crevices and other well-drained habitats.

Narcissus elegans is a member of the Daffodil family and occurs in some of the Mediterranean countries including Spain and Italy but also in France. It is a pretty flower with an orange corona and is quite fragrant. Unlike other narcissus species, Narcissus elegans grows in 'bunches' rather than as a solitary flower; it blooms in April and May. The leaves and the flowers appear at the same time.
