Narcissus x spp.
Hybrid Daffodil

The foliage of Narcissus is usually blue-green, which becomes more apparent in a mass planting. Unfortunately, it is also the longest-persistent foliage of any Spring bulb, slowly dying back to the ground by early Summer. For this reason, the phrase "Daylilies and Daffodils" is sometimes used to encourage interplanting of these two perennials, as the expanding foliage of Daylilies will hide the dying foliage of Daffodils.
