Latin Name: Narcissus pseudonarcissus
Description: Wild daffodils are shorter than the long stemmed cultivated plants. They grow in small clumps, often at the base of trees and hedges.
Season: Late Winter - Early Spring
More Information: During the 19th Century the daffodil seems to have replaced the leek as the plant of Wales, possibly because it flowers around March 1st - St. David's Day, and it is so beautiful
Location: Very early close to the coast - the Parrog at Newport or track to Penbryn Beach. Later in spring almost any shaded riverbank and lane.
