cyclamineus daffodil ‘Jenny’

The ancient Romans believed that sap from daffodils had healing powers. Recent research suggests that some of these compounds may have potential to treat cancer, so perhaps the Romans were right!

Narcissus ‘Jenny’ (cyclamineus daffodil) has one long, narrow tube-shaped flower per stem.Cyclamineus daffodil grows 10-12” tall and blooms early to mid-season. The outer parts of the flower are creamy white, while the central trumpet is yellow. Besides potential for healing, the leaves and bulbs contain toxic compounds that help to keep deer and other herbivores away.
