Narcissus tazetta Linnaeus
Amaryllidaceae
Narcissus tazetta is a common bulbous perennial found in valleys in shaded areas. The leaves appear in autumn with flowers appearing in December. The flowers are white with a central yellow corolla and have a strong sweet smell which can be used to localize the flower. The flowers have been extensively collected but populations of the plant are stable. The plant is variously known as Narcis or the corrupted version Rancis in Malta.
