Did You Know?

“Daffodil” is the accepted, English term for all species and hybrid flowers of the genus Narcissus.
“Narcissus” is the Latin, botanical (scientific) term for the genus, both species and cultivars.

“Jonquil” is the accepted English term for hybrid flowers derived from the species plant Narcissus jonquilla.

In the deep South, often a Daffodil is a big daffodil flower, a Jonquil is a smaller flower (usually yellow), and a Narcissus is a bunch flower (properly called a tazetta, once called “polyanthus”).

For a discussion of daffodil divisions and flower basics, please visit the American Daffodil Society.

“Historic” daffodils are those hybridized before 1940. The term “heirloom” is not used.

The ADS now has an online daffodil database called “DaffSeek” located at https://www.daffseek.org. It contains 24,000 cultivar entries, many with images, from all over the world and is easy to use!
