Narciss Narcissus is a genus of hardy, mostly spring-flowering, perennial plants in the Amaryllidaceae family. Most are native to Europe but with some species naturalized in other places such as North America. They have been extensively cultivated and hybridised - in the case of N. tazetta, for centuries - giving rise to numerous "cultivars" in a great range of sizes, colors, and forms. (Wikipedia)
The Narcissus genus is native to Europe, North Africa, and Western Asia. They are considered hardy perennials but many species with superior flowers are often grown as annuals or tropical plants usually used in warm climates. Most bulbs are poisonous. Many gardeners grow double flowering varieties that are sterile. (Kew)
The Narcissus genus of plants contains about fifteen different species, with at least another ten subspecies and numerous cultivars, which are commonly known as daffodils or jonquils. The study of this genus is known as narcissism. The name is derived from the Greek ναρκισσος, "Narcissus," who was a handsome Greek youth in love with himself. (Wikipedia)
Narcissus are popular garden plants grown for their flowers appearing in winter and early spring. They are usually planted in pots or window boxes to appreciate the flowers up close. The most commonly grown narcissus are hybrids of N. poeticus and N. pseudonarcissus, such as 'Paperwhite' and 'Grand Soleil d'Or'. (Kew)
The Narcissi or Daffodils are a group of spring-flowering perennial plants that grow from bulbs. They are mainly native to the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. It is believed that the plants were introduced into Europe during Roman times, where they became widely naturalized. There are many thousands of cultivars, with different colors from white through yellows and oranges to pinks and reds. (Wikipedia)
The genus Narcissus consists of over 100 different bulbous perennial flowers. They are native to Europe, North Africa and Western Asia. Some species have been used as a food plant by the larvae of hepialid moths of the genus Aenetus, including A. afflictata and A. splendens – see list of Lepidoptera that feed on daffodils.
Global narciss production
Narcissus flowers are grown in many parts of the world, but the majority of commercial production takes place in Southern Europe. The Netherlands is also a major producer, with over 1,000 hectares (2,471 acres) of narcissus fields.
In Spain, the main producing regions are Andalusia and Murcia. Andalusia accounts for around 70% of the country's total narcissus production. The main producing regions in Murcia are Mazarrón, Totana, and Alhama de Murcia.
The United Kingdom is a major producer of narcissus flowers, with most of the crops grown in Cornwall. Other significant producers of narcissus flowers include Israel, Morocco, and Japan.
