Flower: pedicelled or not, generally fragrant; perianth parts fused below, reflexed to erect above, crown a conspicuous tube; stamens free from, generally included in crown; style 1, stigma minutely 3-lobed.

± 26 species: Europe, northern Africa, Asia. (Greek: mythological youth) Extreme variation in perianth color from long history of cultivation; only most common colors indicated here. Plants with perianth parts, crown generally white belong to Narcissus papyraceus Ker Gawl., reported (but evidently not documented) for California in FNANM, similar to, possibly same sp. as, Narcissus tazetta.
Unabridged etymology: (Greek: mythological youth who falls in love with his own reflection and is changed into a flower)
Bulb 2–5 cm, 3–4 cm wide, coats pale brown. Stem: 25–50 cm. Leaf: 4, 20–45 cm, flat, glaucous. Inflorescence: bract 2–3 cm, pale brown, papery. Flower: fragrant; perianth 5–7 cm wide, tube 1.5–2 cm, abruptly tapered to base, parts erect to spreading, often twisted, oblanceolate, yellow, acute, crown 1–1.5 cm wide, yellow, ruffled.
