also known as Multi Headed Daffodils; Miniature Daffodil [Jonquil]. Jonquils are generally one of the first of the Spring bulbs to flower, often beginning in late Winter. Jonquils have a very hardy growth habit and are suitable for nearly all climates. They are good multipliers and are also strongly fragranced, adding this extra dimension to your garden or pots.
Very reliable in warmer climates where normal Daffodils do not grow very well but equally good in cooler climates and where Winters become extremely cold.
Narcissus jonquilla, commonly known as jonquil, rush daffodil, is a bulbous flowering plant, a species of Narcissus (daffodil) that is native to Spain and Portugal, but has now become naturalised in many other regions: France, Italy, Turkey, the former Yugoslavia, Madeira, British Columbia, Utah, Illinois, Ohio, and the southeastern United States from Texas to Maryland.
Narcissus jonquilla bears long, narrow, rush-like leaves (hence the name “jonquil”, Spanish junquillo, from the Latin juncus = “rush“). In late spring it bears heads of up to five scented yellow or white flowers. It is a parent of numerous varieties within Division 7 of the horticultural classification. Division 7 in the Royal Horticultural Society classification of Narcissus includes N. jonquilla and N. apodanthus hybrids and cultivars that show clear characteristics of those two species.
N. jonquilla has been cultivated since the 18th century in France as the strongest of the Narcissus species used in Narcissus Oil, a component of many modern perfumes.
