  1. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Narcissus /nɑːrˈsɪsəs/ is a genus of predominantly spring perennial plants in the Amaryllidaceae (amaryllis) family. Various common names including daffodil,[notes 1] daffadowndilly,[3] narcissus, and jonquil are used to describe all or some members of the genus. Narcissus has conspicuous flowers with six petal-like tepals surmounted by a cup- or trumpet-shaped corona. The flowers are generally white or yellow (orange or pink in garden varieties), with either uniform or contrasting coloured tepals and corona.

    Although prized as an ornamental flower, some people consider narcissi unlucky, because they hang their heads implying misfortune.[20] White narcissi are especially associated with death, such as N triandrus ‘Thalia’, and have been called grave flowers.[196][197] In Ancient Greece narcissi were planted near tombs and Robert Herrick, describes them as portents of death, an association which also appears in the myth of Persephone and the underworld
