Spring bulbous plant of the Amaryllis family
The name of the flower is associated with the myth of Narcissus, a young man who rejected the love of a nymph. The nymph cursed him: “Let not the one whom he loves reciprocate Narcissus.” One day, Narcissus saw his reflection in the stream and lost his peace from the beauty he saw. Unable to move away from the stream, Narcissus stopped eating, drinking and sleeping; he melted before our eyes until he disappeared without a trace. And on the ground where he was last seen, a fragrant white flower of cold beauty grew. Since then, the fury goddesses of retribution began to adorn themselves with wreaths of daffodils.
