Narcissus pseudonarcissus

Narcissus pseudonarcissus

Common name daffodil
Family amaryllidaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-10)
Flowers yellow
Light sun-part shade

From what I can tell, this is the wild form of the common daffodil. Not sure if it's worth growing from seed, but since I started, I'll try to see it through. Of two plants started from seed in 2009, I got one flower in 2015. Whoopee! Mine is an even golden yellow – one of the two forms I've seen in online photos, the other having paler petals with a darker trumpet.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
