Pheasant's Eye Narcissus/Daffodil
"Daffodil" and "narcissus" are different names for the same flower
This large white daffodil, which is also sometimes called the Poet's Daffodil, is a charming combination of white petals, red and yellow rim to a cup with a surprising bit of green inside. The green of the inside cup, or "eye", is what gives the Pheasant's Eye Daffodil its name.
These are beautiful to see bloom in the garden.
The scent is fabulous and the flowers are lovely either in the garden or in a vase. 2 or 3 blossoms in a room will scent the whole room.
These are beautiful to see bloom in the garden when planted in naturalized drifts.
You do not want to plant daffodils in straight lines, and when you see a cluster of these exquisite daffodils come up in the springtime you'll be charmed both by their unique look
