"Daffodils are yellow trumpets of spring."
- Richard L. Ratliff
Daffodils (the common name by which the flowers of the Narcissus plant are known) are a seasonal spring flower typically available on the New Zealand flower markets between June-September.
The pictured yellow “trumpet” style is the most well known variation of the daffodil, although there are actually 50 different species. Typically, the flower is known to mean friendship.
The flower is the national flower for Wales and the symbol of cancer charities in many countries.
The cut flower lasts for 7-10 days once they arrive with the proper care
and are lightly scented. As they are a shorter stem flower, we commonly use them in posies.
