December Birth Flower: Narcissus aka Daffodil

Narcissus is from the Narcissistic youth of Greek mythology called Narkissos.
It is mostly common to the Mediterranean region but there are a few found in Asia and China.

The Narcissus has a trumpet shaped corona that is surrounded by a ring of petals. They are also poisonous and can be fatal if eaten so no parts of the flower should be ingested.

December: Narcissus
Alternate: Holly

Fun and interesting fact: When comparing the Daffodil, Jonquil, and the "Narcissus", it is important to remember that both the Daffodil and Jonquil are a part of the Narcissus genus. However while the names "Daffodil" and "Narcissus" can be used interchangeably, a Jonquil is a completely different plant down to the shape of the petals and leaves.
