Common name: Jetfire or jet fire daffodil, cyclamineus daffodil
Narcissus, also known as daffodil, is native to the meadows and woods of southern Europe and North Africa. It is easy to grow and is popular as a garden ornamental and as a cut flower. Narcissus comes in a range of flower shapes and sizes. It is a long-lived bulbous plant that propagates by division. It naturalizes easily and multiplies. Narcissus bulbs should be planted in fall with their pointy side facing up, and their flat end pointing down. We have many different ones in the Garden.
Narcissus 'Jetfire' is a miniature daffodil, found at the foot of the Rhodo Walk in Bed 46A. Its trumpet is dark orange. It was created in 1966 by Oregon plantsman Grant Mitsch, who was a prominent US narcissus hybridizer.
