Learn More About The Daffodil Drawing

Daffodil, jonquil, narcissus, buttercup. All are names for the same lovely flower.

Daffodils are known for their trumpet-like, bell shaped flowers. The plants are native to Europe and northern Africa, but now grow all over the world.

Daffodils are perennial, meaning they come back year after year. The flowers grow from a bulb, which resembles a small, hard potato.

Daffodils are one of the first springtime flowers to emerge in temperate climates, often while snow still blankets the ground.

In art and culture, this flower has many meanings.

In ancient Greece, the flower was associated with death and the underworld, and thus was planted near tombs.

In Wales, England, it is the national flower and a symbol of the March 1 holiday called Saint David's Day.

In Iran, it symbolizes the new year. In Persia, it is used as a metaphor for beautiful eyes, and in the Far East as a symbol of wealth.

Did you know? In Greek mythology, the demigod Narcissus was so beautiful that he fell in love with his own reflection in a stream and drowned there.

The daffodil, or narcissus, was named for him, as it was said to grow on the riverbank to mark the spot where he fell.
