What do you know about daffodils?

By Popup Cut on Jun 19, 2023

Daffodils are among the first flowers to appear as spring approaches, so it’s no surprise that they’re the birth flower for March, as well as a symbol of rebirth and new beginnings. But daffodils have also represented many other ideas over the years.

The name ‘Narcissus’ comes from a Greek myth about a hunter who spurned all romantic advances and then fell in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. Unable to tear himself away, he died and a narcissus flower grew where his body had been. The way that daffodil heads tilt towards the ground is said to mimic Narcissus dropping his head to gaze at his reflection. This story is also the origin of the term ‘narcissism’, which describes someone who is selfish, overconfident, and obsessed with their personal appearance.

  1. They were brought to Britain by the Romans

The Romans believed that the daffodil sap would heal wounds. In fact, the opposite is true. Daffodil sap contains sharp crystals to deter animals from eating the flower. This actually irritates the skin rather than heals it.

  1. They are the birth flower for March

As they are one of the first signs that spring has arrived, it makes sense that these beautiful flowers represent the first month of the season.

  1. Always present daffodils in a bunch

Legend says daffodils are associated with cheerfulness. When they are presented to someone as a bunch, it is meant to provide happiness. However, if they are only given as a single flower, it is meant to mean misfortune.

  1. Symbolizes new beginnings and friendships

Daffodils are said to symbolize friendship but also new beginnings. They are one of the first signs of Spring and are also strongly associated with Easter because of this reason.

  1. They are meaningful across the world

In China, the daffodil symbolizes good fortune and they are the official Chinese New Year symbol. In Japan, the daffodil means joy and in France they are a sign of hope.

  1. They are used to celebrating 10th Anniversaries

Daffodils, along with tin, are known as the traditional gifts to celebrate a decade of marriage. It is now, however, a more modern choice to celebrate with diamond jewelry instead of tin.

  1. They are the National Flower of Wales

Daffodils have become a National Emblem of Wales alongside the leek. They are  traditionally worn on St David's Day as this tends to be the time of year daffodils start to appear.

  1. They are known to have medicinal properties

Although unsupervised ingestion of daffodils can be fatal, modern medicine have used extracts from the flower to treat Alzheimer's disease.

  1. They are many different types of daffodils

This topic is regularly debated; however, it is said there could be as many as 200 different species of daffodil.
