“Daffodils” by William Warby

NYC Floral enthusiasts rejoice! The beloved daffodil is back in season. Here at Starbright, we’re prepping the stems and getting ready for Spring!

 

Daffodil Notes /

Daffodils are often considered to be some of the sunniest flowers around; they are among the first wild flowers to appear in Spring and are the official flower of the month of March. They are most commonly found in yellow or white, though orange and pink varieties exist as well. The unique shape of the bloom, with its six petal-like tepals surrounding a trumpet-shaped corona is easy to identify though it is called by many names including: narcissus, jonquil, and daffadowndilly.

Daffodils are native to the Mediterranean. They were initially brought to England by the ancient Romans who believed the blooms had medicinal properties…which is not at all true. The flowers have toxic crystals that can irritate the skin, repel garden pests, and even wilt other flowers in the same vase unless treated properly.

 

Inside Info /
  • Daffodils are some of the first flowers to bloom; they can actually grow straight through the snow
  • Bring a bundle of daffodils to a friend, but never a single bloom. One daffodil on it’s own predicts misfortune!
  • Daffodils are a symbol of hope and friendship today.
