Did you know that the earliest record of daffodils was two or three hundred years B.C.? They were grown primarily by ancient Greeks and Romans. Narkissos is the ancient Greek word for the narcissus flower, daffodil.
In mythology, Narcissus was a hunter who was considered beautiful. His conceited personality led him to use and reject his admirers with no consideration for their feelings. The goddess of revenge, Nemesis, decided to punish Narcissus for his egotistical behavior. She lured him to a stream where he became infatuated with his own reflection and eventually drowned. He was transformed by the nymphs into a flower.
If you notice, daffodils are slightly bent facing downward resembling Narcissus who refused to look up from the stream.
