Narcissus is a genus of mainly hardy, mostly spring-flowering, bulbs native to Europe, North Africa, and Asia. All Narcissus species have a central bell-, bowl-, or disc-shaped corona surrounded by a ring of six floral leaves. The seeds are black, round and swollen with a hard coat. The three outer segments are sepals, and the three inner segments are petals. Though the traditional daffodil may have a yellow to golden-yellow colour all over, both in the wild species and due to breeding, the perianth and corona may be variously colored. Breeders have developed some daffodils with double, triple, or ambiguously multiple rows and layers of segments, and several wild species also have known double variants.
